Leadership by example…not!

A cute anecdote from Sula in her post Leadership by Example (here). 

A big man in the organization had a high bamboo pole erected in the camp. He told us we must climb it and reach the topmost part or we don’t deserve to be in the organization. Later we found out he himself hasn’t even climbed the pole.

And the leadership lesson?

If you can’t be a leader, be a pole. 

Ah, yes…we’ve all worked for poles, haven’t we?
