A person who rules, guides, influences or inspires others A Leader?
Do you play a leadership role? Difference between legitimate and community leaders?
How do you lead without legitimacy? <ul><li>I see myself as a guide through a complex 'landscape 'and a team/partnership builder </li></ul><ul><li>Our leader works with, and therefore has the support of, the community, local businesses, town, district and county councils - he has no need for legitimate power himself </li></ul>
Quote <ul><li>I lead from the front. I take it all, good, bad or indifferent - but it is so important to work with and find trust in others. I seek different organisations to work in partnership with to achieve the same end. </li></ul>
Quote <ul><li>We have a public face – a spokesperson, or fall guy - however we all have a role to play and we are all equal </li></ul><ul><li>An effective partnership that is working properly gains ‘legitimacy’ </li></ul>
So... <ul><li>Do you possess the personal traits needed to to lead without legitimacy? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you behave and communicate like a leader? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you need help to develop these skills? </li></ul>
