If You Want to Lead People, You Must Get Behind Them. Why is This Important?
by Dante Chestnut
Today, there's a litany of people who want to be leaders, but often forget the key element of being a great leader, is to first be a great follower. Growing up in Mobile Alabama (Prichard) as a child, we had leaders in the community that I looked up to such as my pastor, the late Rev. Fred L. Sanderson from Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church He always encouraged us to be the best at whatever we set our minds to. His faith in us, support, and personal actions exemplified what a great leader should be.
