One of the questions we are always asked is, where do you find leaders? We have discovered tomorrow’s leaders are today’s group members. As we begin to share ownership and rotate leadership through the natural flow of group life, we find our best potential leaders in this setting. This is also contrary to traditional group theory that dictates a strong leader teaching listening members. I will unpack this idea in subsequent chapters.
