Replaceable

There are leaders
under whom we feel
replaceable.

Not because they want us
replaced,
but because they focus
on whether we do well
or poorly.

Planting within us the idea
that our job
is to meet their
expectation.

There are also leaders
under whom we feel
needed.

Not only because they need us,
but because they tell us
vulnerably so
that
they need us.

That they cannot do this
by themselves.

That they need
our help.

Planting within us the idea
that our job
is to be
our best.
