I also wanted to give a shout out to Bono, the lead singer of U2. I always enjoyed him as an artist, but what tipped me over to seeing him as an important global leader was his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast where he made an appeal for the ONE Campaign and caring about the plight of people with fewer resources around the world. I got involved immediately after hearing his “sermon.” True leaders inspire. We use “rockstar” on GovLoop a lot to describe great civil servants…but he definitely embodies that term for me as a vocal, valuable advocate for our world’s most impoverished people, using popularity as leverage for leading.
