True Leadership & Power Rests in the Spirit of Servant Leaders / #positivedisruption #unstoppable #thisAmericanQuilt
What are true leaders? Do we covet fame? Do we covet the people's acknowledgement of our effort, our work, our success in our endeavors?
What is true leadership? Is our passion and conviction beholden to polls?

What understanding can be gleamed from this kind of leader? What is true power? How does the servant leader retain power over the ordinary political leader?
How does the servant leader exercise coup de etats left and right without physical armies? How does he retain power and bring his opponents to heal?

And emboldened hearts
You wouldn't believe
A revolution under way
And the leader dancing'
