Leadership Lessons…

Posted: May 16, 2008 in My life

I read this today, and it slapped me right smack in the face.

“You have to be something before you can get something. Maybe we don’t actually say it, but there are times when we hold back the best of who we are because “that’s not our job”? Admit it. Haven’t you ever thought, “That’s not my problem,” or “I don’t get paid enough to put up with this!”? OK, I’ll go first. I have. When it comes to personal leadership, we can’t wait for the position to demonstrate it. We can’t wait for the promotion to make the difference, because the difference is what makes the promotion.”

More to come tomorrow…you can’t handle all of it at once!!!
