This is how Leadership is defined
Leadership is “organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal”. The leader may or may not have any formal authority. Students of leadership have produced theories involving traits, situational interaction, function, behavior, power, vision and values, charisma, and intelligence, among others.
On my Birthday this year I went to an event called Paley Fest it was a Q and A for the Sons of Anarchy.
I listen to questions about their show but ended up learning a few things about leadership.
Now their show is based off an MC lifestyle and the rise and fall of members and leaders.
Their main character has now become the President of the club his father built and was murdered with some over tones of the story of Hamlet.
This really hit home for me being in a similar situation.
I created Brotherhood of the Wolf with some of the same values this fictitious club has, but also offer something a little different because we are about.
- Supporting Metal Music scene around the world for both all Male and Female Bands.
- Social Rebellion from what MTV, Record companies and Shady Promoters want to you to listen to.
- Creating sometime positive instead of creating negative vibes. Metal is about Unity and Bonding of a larger Family. Being a badass is kind of played out don’t you think?
These are simple concepts and when combined make a difference in the world.
I learned things you let happen around you can shape you and your club in good and some bad ways. How you act as a leader will be tested everyday in different ways. Depending on how you react a situation will lead you and your family to the Promised Land or down a dark path where there is no redemption.
Mind you no Leader is perfect nor should a Leader think they know better than the next person.
There’s a saying that goes
“A Good Leader will listen with an open heart and head, But a Bad Leader will never know he’s failed you because he will never really listen”
Sometimes life throws so much at a person things just meld together and you can lose focus. I have had this happen many times but I’m still true to what my Heart feels and that is to bring everyone together.
All the work and effort I have given is never self serving. It will always be for All Local Metal Music no matter where my extended Werewolf and Vampire Metal Family resides.
I learn and grow as a Leader everyday and will always remain true Children of Metal.
The Spirit of Metal is in Each of us. Be proud and let it show always because I will…
