I’ve written, tweeted, and had several conversations recently about leading and serving. Pictured above is my friend and brother Kevin Hazzard (Blog | @KevinHazzard) at this past Saturday’s Richmond Code Camp (photo used by permission from Brock Barnett, another servant-leader and founder of MaconIT in Richmond VA).
The Developer and SQL Server communities are filled with servant-leaders. I bet you know some.
- They don't seek the spotlight... at least not for themselves - rather they seek to elevate those around them.
- They don't compete. And when others compete with them, they most often remain silent.
- They are humble.
- They serve simply for the honor of serving.
Want to find the leaders in our community? Stop looking on ballots. Start looking in janitorial closets.
