Leadership begins with the transcendence of the conventional mental map.  Leadership is not a job, it is a calling.  It means that a person is willing to go beyond convention for the good of the whole.  The leader embodies the purpose.  The leader reinforces the purpose in every interaction.  This gives rise to positive organizing.  The process of positive organizing is a process of action.  When purpose moves people to action, they become more motivated.  They learn and grow, and they often exceed expectations.
