Education is a privilege. But, what is the purpose of educational institutions? Are they meant to train leaders or followers? In many of our management classes, we are taught that being a good follower is a requirement of becoming a great leader. A proficient follower means being engaged and having the knowledge and courage to dissent if you think your superior is doing something wrong. It also means having the passion and energy to support a leader who is making wise decisions. The strength of conviction is essential to effective leadership. Nonetheless, there are other unstated rules in society that limit your enthusiasm and encourage you to remain in your comfort zone rather than taking on challenges. On that path, many people lose their insight and never trust their analysis, judgment, and even instincts. This is where mainstream opinions starts and passionate people are left behind.
