PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

ACCG President
Harry Lange

High Standards, Great Leadership
LEADERSHIP IS TYPICALLY viewed
as a level of hierarchy that allows someone
to guide others to achieve a set goal or vision.
But what truly makes someone a good leader?
Is it their ability to inspire others through
their words or is it setting positive examples
through their actions? When you sit and think
about it, there is no set definition of what
makes someone a good leader because a good
leader can do all of that and more. A leader
knows that leadership is more than just a role,
it is behavior.
Ray Kroc once stated, "The quality of a
leader is reflected in the standards they set
for themselves." A leader is not only powerful because of their position but because
they expect more from themselves than they
expect from those around them. They hold
themselves to a higher standard than what
others hold them.
During the years, I have realized that
leadership isn't solely about having the lead
position, it is the ability to step back and let
others take the reign - trusting your team
to adequately do the job they were enlisted
to perform. As the ACCG president, my role
isn't just to work with the staff to oversee
our operations but to trust the newly elected
Board of Managers to effectively perform
their tasks. I am certain that the individuals
elected to our Board by our members are

the type of leaders previously described.
Our Board members are those who lead by
example. Not only are they making effective
changes in their local communities, but their
reach extends to their neighboring counties,
their regions and throughout the state to
make a positive impact on all of Georgia.
In addition to our leaders on the Board of
Managers, our membership and those who
answered the call to public service, including local government partners with whom
we work with each day, are exemplary individuals. Those individuals' efforts do not go
unnoticed. They are honored with our various
leadership and partnership awards in the
annual ACCG Awards program.
One may see as they browse the pages of
this publication that Georgia's county government team is full of well-equipped leaders who
share a passion for giving back through their
selfless acts of answering the call to public
service, whether as an appointed or elected
official. Their answer to the public service call
is reflective of the trust in their capabilities
held by those they lead. While those individuals continue to lead by example, I encourage
everyone to establish their own standards of
leadership and push themselves to exceed
those goals - hold yourself to a higher standard so that you are always striving to give
your best.
