'Leadership should be aimed at helping to free people from oppressive structures, practices and habits encountered in societies and institutions, as well as within the shady recesses of ourselves. Good leaders liberate.'
Amanda Sinclair, Leadership for the Disillusioned
A Leader Creates the Space.
This implies boundaries.
Boundaries give certainty of the resources - time, materials, people - with which to create.
Limits, rules, policies, regulations, contracts, processes, checklists - liberate.
The Leader, having created the space and its boundaries, stretches out her hand to us sheltering in our shady recesses and says:
'Come out and play!'
