Who is in charge??

Posted: April 21, 2017 in Uncategorized

There are these really posh high-rise buildings in the big cities. Important men and women go in the buildings, some live there and others meet there. The men and women discuss policies and procedures, rules that everyone else will be forced to live by. The men and women go into the buildings and look out on the cities and the people in the city while doing their work.

Initially, it can seem as though the most important men and women are the ones who walk through the doors and go up the elevators and have the meetings but those doors are heavy locked and need to be opened. The policies and procedures decided on the need to be cared out.  The doors do not open on their own, they are opened by doorman. One of the most powerful unions in New York city is the doorman’s union.

The policies and procedures are enforced through doorman following rules and police officers enforcing those rules.  See the real power does not lie in the men and women in the building but the power lies in the men and women outside the building on the street. The ones who wake up and go to work every day. Understanding that the doorman is the real power that is what makes for a good leader and a wise man.

When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves.’ Lao Tzu

A good leader and a good person will realize that they are less of a leader and more of an influence and cheerleader. A good leader will empower the doorman of the world.
