" When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives." George RR Martin, A Game of Thrones

These babies are beginning to form their personalities here.  Originally I thought the middle one would pull forward the strongest but that is not happening.  Which do you see as leading the trio?

Sometimes the strongest personality makes the weakest leader. When we look back at life and think about strong leadership, it is often the quieter thinker that is firm and direct with the approach to a situation and not the loud boisterous person.  

I found the best article from Forbes online.  "8 Ways to Spot Great Leadership" by Mike Myatt

First it covers what is NOT a good leadership role... dealing in filibuster, lecturing and over talking. Sounding more Biblical, it is not arrogant or exclusive and it engages listening, discernment and action. Some highlights below:


  1. A good leader realizes they lead people not things.
  2. A good leader will often include by saying 'and' and not 'or', keeping the inclusive out there for everyone.    
  3. A good leader will not overshadow others and they are always listening to what people around they say. They want to understand.  
  4. Who is willing to take the hit if something goes wrong? Yes, it would be the leader.
  5. Leaders are never perfect. Compromise is important to be inclusive.
  6. Leadership is always challenging and never comfortable, and it involves careful strategy aligning people to be woven into and a part of a similar mindset. 

Humm... I wonder which wolf is the leader. 

Philippians 2:3  "Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. "
