Somewhere music is seen before it’s ever made or heard.
That somewhere is birthplace of vision. I wish that somewhere had a name, but it doesn’t. Maybe if it had a name we wouldn’t be so eager to get there…and it would be just that, a place with a name.
Nevertheless, the role of a leader unfolds in such a place. For this is where he or she must dwell and report back.
Leroy Eims once said, “A leader is who sees more than others see, who sees farther than others see, and who sees before others do.”
In other words, a leader is ridiculously and relentlessly aware of all things happening below the surface, behind the actions, in the words, and on the other side of the horizon.
