Roxanne Kaufman Elliott

Leadership Development Facilitator and Coach

This is the story of Joe
A humble man who lived simply, quietly and kindly, and yet, he was one of the greatest leaders I have ever known. Joe never had a real job; lived on his parent’s farm all of his life; took care of his parents until they passed; worked tirelessly in the community, for the church and all the causes you can imagine; never had a social security card or a bank account; never went to college; and rarely left the town he was born in. He was also one of the most well-read, intelligent and wise men the world has seen; was an amazing self-taught handy man, electrician and craftsman; and amassed a small fortune in cash that he kept hidden on the farm. Anyone who ever knew Joe would have followed him over a cliff without a second thought – I am at the top of that list to this day.

Joe radiated the five practices of exemplary leadership… and lived an extraordinary life that impacted innumerable people in the most incredible ways. How did he do that? Was he born a leader? Did he somehow learn about the five practices? How could someone like Joe, with such a humble background be such a great leader? Joe’s simple story will open the door to some rather profound insights on authentic leadership and will perhaps begin to answer these questions and more.
