We can't win at everybody's expense.
We can only fully be satisfied when the other person's needs
Are fulfilled as well as our own.

— Marshall B. Rosenberg

Welcome, Inspired Traveler!

Leadership and service are about many things but, at their core, is the understanding that we are all connected in this human condition that we share. In order to be successful leaders who create a legacy of excellence, we must understand this above all else.

When we are focused on making a difference in the lives of others, we make a difference and create success in our own work. Seems simple enough, but a glimpse at the nightly news, a quick read through the paper or some updates from the web often prove differently.

So, I offer you some questions to ponder while you lead with passion and excellence:

  • How are you making life MORE fulfilling for those you lead?
  • How are you providing connection among ALL those you work and live with?
  • Are you inspiring those you serve EVERY day?
  • Are you growing the leaders for TOMORROW?
  • Do you know those things that are MOST important and MOST valued by those you lead?

Give yourself the time it takes to thoughtfully reflect upon those questions and to make some changes, if necessary, in how you connect with and support those you lead. As Saint Francis said, we must seek first to understand and THEN to be understood. Leaders put the needs of those they serve first; all the rest will follow.

Be Magnificent! Have an Inspirational Day!
