Leadership and Personal Development

Posted on Jun 27, 2013 in Inspiration, Leadership

We have all traveled enough by now to know by heart the lesson of “put your own mask on first before assisting others with theirs.” Most of us tune it out and hope we will never need the advice. As leaders, however, we ignore this bit of wisdom at our own peril. Strong and successful leadership is intimately tied to whether or not we constantly have a reliable source of oxygen in our life. Where is our energy coming from? What feeds and nourishes us? We are unable to lead others if our own passion is missing.

Effective leadership in any organization is never about telling people what to do but rather showing them by our example.
