Anyone who has seen the movie, “Finding Nemo” remembers the seagulls. “Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine” was their constant cry.

As leaders we can sometimes mimic the seagulls.

My knowledge: “Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine”

My experience: “Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine”

My position: “Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine”

I recently realized that if I count my role as the vice president of the United Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF) of Pacoima, I have been in leadership roles for almost 40 years! OMG! Am I that doggone old? Evidently.

So what do I have to show for all of these years of experience?

Well, for one thing I have learned that being in charge is glamorous but being a leader is hard; es muy dificil.

I have bought my share of books on how to become a good leader. Almost certainly they contained nuggets of wisdom; but by necessity, those books contained cookie-cutter approaches because they are designed to be generally applicable.

In addition, I grew up as a leader looking for role models (and buying books by and about them). For a while I believed that my best path to success as a leader was to emulate my role models.

Thus, my default setting when equipping leaders was to ask them to do what I was doing, find a model or a role model to emulate; sometimes I was that role model, sharing my experiences with others in order to replicate myself in them.
