A Leading Questions blog series by Ed Brenegar
31 Questions
Questions have always been the lifeblood of what I do. It is where I start and finish everything. It is whymy blog took the title Leading Questions. Over the past few months, I've been thinking more about thequestions that are either implied or asked by people in organizations. As a little exercise in creativity, Ibegan to write down questions about leadership.Then I decided to do a little exercise for the readers of my blog. I asked the questions that I've beenasking myself; for my readers to ponder the answers. As you read through this series, and you havesomething to say, you can leave a comment at my blog, http://edbrengar.typepad.com. First click on theseries link on the right, and then find the specific questions that interest you.These questions were posted each day during the month of July 2008.

As I approached this task of asking questions, I began to think about the assumptions that I make aboutleadership. I arrived at 10 Assumptions about leadership that guide my thinking. This is where I begin.Nothing written here should be considered as my last word. The purpose of this exercise was to thinkmore clearly and specifically. I’m still learning, and much of that comes through the interaction that Ihave with people. Hope you enjoy the series.
10 Assumptions
Here are 10 Assumptions that I bring to the practice of leadership.
1. Leadership is both a role and a responsibility.
 
2. Leadership is role specific based on position within the organizational structure.
 
3. Leadership is a responsibility when it is a matter of influence and impact.
 
4. Leadership occurs in the context of human relationships.
 
5. Leadership is measured by Impact. Impact is the change or difference that comes fromdecisions made and actions taken.
 
6. Leadership is everyone’s responsibility.
 
7. Leadership originates in the act of personal initiative. Initiative is the action that follows adecision to act.

8. Leadership initiative is an action that everyone can take, regardless of role, experience orskill.
 
9. Leadership development helps people understand how to think, relate and act to make adifference.
 
10. Leadership can take place within an organizational structure or within an informalrelationship of people.
 
Learn
1. How do Leaders learn to lead?
Simple question.Not intended to be complicated.Rather, I just want to understand how people actually do learn.Any stories?Examples?Please share.+++Learning is different than the acquiring of knowledge. Learning is a transformational process. Learningchanges the learner.Learning for leading is more than reading books and being inspired. It is learning that transforms theleader.
