Dana the Coward


So the above posting appeared on Facebook today—and I’m genuinely furious.

Arrested? Arrested!? You refuse to meet the people you represent … and now you threaten to have them arrested for trespassing?


This is not leadership.

Leadership is standing up for what you believe and defending it, even if you know it will come with boos, with catcalls. Leadership is taking a position and showing people why they’re wrong and you’re right. Leadership is also taking a position, hearing opposing views and, on occasion, saying, “Hmm, that’s a good point.”

Leadership is being accountable.

Leadership is being available.

Leadership is being open.

This is not leadership.

This is cowardice.
