At first glance, being a hero sounds great, and just what your corner of the world needs. But in reality, most real-life heroes are not doing their best work because they are worn-out, burnt-out and run-ragged. The world needs leaders who are grounded in their strengths and values; have a community of peers they can turn to for support and ideas; are committed to quantifiable, time-bound aims; and routinely bringing out the best in others in ways that are life-affirming, life-enhancing and sustainable. People who operate like this can influence far beyond the people they know. And this is how real, large-scale social change happens.
