The group of people who have a “mind to grow” is a very small group. The world is made up of those who live to walk the path of least resistence. But for the ones who are willing to grow and learn and lead, there is a world waiting to be discovered and a life worth living!
Leaders do the hard work of preparing personally so that they are free to help others during life’s most critical moments.
When you lead with both the truth of what is and the hope of what will be, people want to follow. We are currently seeing what happens when leaders fail to understand this most basic principle. If we will learn from the bad examples as well as the good, however, we will be prepared to lead with BOTH hope and truth when the next crisis comes.
All examples, good or bad, provide lessons that can be learned to lead through the next crisis. Who are you watching, what are you learning, and how will you apply what you are learning in your life? No event is a wasted event unless we fail to learn.
Why do we love superheroes so much? Could it be that we like the idea of someone coming a long to rescue us?
