What IS this place?

Each week the Offbeat Leader blog shares notes from the field on influential people, crazy success stories, and anecdotes on success in business and life. You don’t need to be a ship captain, military commander, or CEO to be a leader; you could be a parent, small business owner, entrepreneur, or have a job in an office. No matter what you do you have responsibilities, and important things to manage, and you’ve got dreams that go beyond figuring out tonight’s dinner.


Most people don’t decide to become a great “leader,” they somehow find themselves cast in the role. It’s like a battlefield promotion, you’ve got to take charge or perish. It’s not the stripes on your uniform, or the title on your business card that makes you a leader, it’s the battle scars. And most of us are out there earning them every day.
