I strive to make this quote the foundation of my life. I wish I could say I was always successful, but even when I’m not, it’s at the forefront of my mind and deeply embedded in my heart.
I am motivated by helping others succeed in a way that’s meaningful to them. And I find that I’m most drawn to others who share this mindset. I instantly connect with leaders who believe in others and strive to be servants who lead AND leaders who serve.
I fundamentally believe that leadership is an act of service. It is an opportunity to lift others up, to learn with them, to grow with them. Leaders are people of hope.
To all of the servant leaders out there, thank you for all you do. You give leadership a good name.
