During one of our recent SOS Gr8 Women Leaders sessions, we had an incredibly poignant conversation about how important it is for leaders to value, respect, and honor other leaders. Each and every human being has value. Every person has unique and wonderful gifts to share with the world.
As leaders, we are called to help others discover their gifts, but it doesn’t stop there. We need to encourage and empower others to fully utilize those gifts so that they can answer their own individual call to leadership. Just imagine what the world would be like if every leader was striving to do this on a daily basis.
Amanda Quraishi, one of the SOS Gr8 Women Leaders, shared this:
“I’ve realized recently just how important it is to value people for their unique gifts. My passion and my calling are my own–and YOURS don’t have to align with MINE — they are valuable and important BECAUSE they are yours.
We are all here for a purpose, and whatever yours is, I will commit to showing you the kind of respect and honor you deserve. Be YOU…completely, un-apologetically, perfectly YOU…
And know that you are loved.”
What will you do today to encourage and empower the leaders in your life today?
