No Leader is an Island: Why are Leaders Better with Their People?

The title is inspired by the saying: “No man is an island” which was popularized by 17th century writer, John Donne. It was only a poem, but why is it being applied to leadership nowadays? Well, the poem line has deep meaning—there is no man who could do better without his people or his community. So does in terms of leadership.

As a leader, we know we are sometimes being used to be the center among others. People around us seem to rely on us for lots of strategic decisions. Of course we must create a healthy company’s environment; learning culture, digital learning, and sharing knowledge are examples of good terms in leadership. And yes, you can’t do it all by yourself.

Furthermore, it would drive us to be a trusted-leader came with those capability of sharing knowledge and leadership skill. Let’s view our leadership as a home, in which we build warmth and comfort to all its members. Never forget that in order to build our leadership, we always need other people too.

digimers, what do you think? Are you really no-leader-is-an-island person?.
