Cultivating Transformational Leaders

We are constantly talking about the need for leaders as well as for "Leadership" responsibility for influencing a positive change process through out our various organizations, institutions, and society a a whole.
Many articles were written that say "If ever there was time where leaders are needed, not in just a few places, but all over and through our floundering eroding dysfunctional society a whole, that time is now".

The point that I want to make here is that we have them; they exist at all levels of our business world, our academia communities, and our societies a a whole. They are called: "Followers."
Leaders in reality are followers, and followers in reality lead, and both of these groups do it through their ability to influence, to persuade, to respect differences and see the value of diversity.

The problem we have is, how does that old saying go, "we can't see the forest for the trees."
The few real leaders we do have, were also followers and still follow to some degree as we speak, it's called the "Ability to Listen".
If we are able to accept this above premise of "Leadership/Followership" then there needs to be a way where we can cultivate this resource that is all around us, that we mingle and associate with every day, we just don't know who they are, and where they live, but trust me they are there.

Followers do step up from time to time, that's where we got what we got, (smile) but unfortunately not all of them got the message that they are supposed to be "Responsible Leaders". That they are supposed to bring us together toward a "Vision," a vision of a society that aligns itself around personal character and integrity, where "NO" anything we can get away with, is NOT acceptable, because we are responsible for our actions and their effects on others.
Well the obvious question now is, OK, can we agree on the above premise, and if so what do we do about it and where do we go from here?
To make a very long story short, I am suggesting that we put a "Story" together on this whole subject, idea, whatever want to call it, and take it out on a "Show & Tell" format, and see how much interest we could conjure up, so we can see where we might go from there.
Hey, any thoughts and idea's as to the validity for what is stated as well as proposed, is very easy let us know.
Sure does make for perfect challenge doesn't it?
