How the Aussie PM Displayed Servant Leadership

Last weekend Australia’s Prime Minister, Tony Abbot, carried out a campaign promise that almost went unnoticed.  He stood on line with others in his volunteer firefighting company as they spent 14 hours fighting a bushfire.  Prior to his election Abbot vowed he would keep serving with his local fire brigade, something he’s done since 2001.

Pull quote from the full story: “While many Twitter followers praised his volunteering spirit, others questioned the wisdom of the nation’s leader putting himself in the line of fire.”

Leaders who keep their promises and who serve…where have we heard that one before??564442-08eeb1b2-393b-11e3-a826-323d4d841c99
