The Stretched Blog Visits Joseph Lalonde – Leading From Our Hands And Our Knees

Today, I’m guest posting as part of The Network for Joe Lalonde at his blog, Joseph Lalonde.  In my post (Leading From Our Hands And Our Knees), I share some thoughts about servant-based leadership.  Here’s an excerpt to get you started.

Authority is an important aspect of leadership, but there is something else leaders should consider.

Leaders lead best when they lead from their hands and knees.
