When seen through the lens of a servant’s heart, leadership becomes not just a job but a calling. Lives are changed for the better. Next-generation leaders are molded. Along the way, the sense of destiny God planted in each individual soul finds fulfillment.
if you want to have a significant impact on people, on organizations, and on communities, you’d be wise to invest in learning the behaviors that enable you to become the very best leader you can.
when you have a CEO who is so ingrained in the agency, staff, and each and every one of the clients, you only want to push yourself further.
Leaders don’t have to change history, but they do have to change “business as usual.” To them, the status quo is unacceptable. Leaders challenge the process. They search for opportunities, and they experiment and take risks. Exemplary leaders also know that they have to be willing to make some personal sacrifices in service of a higher purpose.
Leaders provide opportunities for people to exceed their previous levels of performance.
When leaders are doing their best, they Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.
Titles are granted, but it’s your behavior that earns you respect.
Who I am, what I do, and how I do it make a difference.
[Celebrations] are the punctuation marks that make sense of the passage of time; without them, there are no beginnings and endings. Life becomes an endless series of Wednesdays.
