“Being in the military to put into perspective with what leadership is, or as defined by my personal experience, you learn to lead without title or position, and other’s follow your example. Not everyone who had the title or position deserved it, nor could they lead effectively because of what it is to be an actual leader. A leader leads by affluence and acceptance. Even when their leadership isn’t clear, and they have to seem to be the bad guy, most know that there has to be a reason for the tough tasks or seemingly impossible demands. And they follow, out of respect, not because of the title or position, but simply because of who they are known to be. I appreciate everyone that ever followed my direction, those of whom I had the privilege to lead, they followed, and hopefully they took a piece of me and added it to themselves. That’s what it is to lead, the example of who to be.” – Ryan L. Rinehart
