Another really personal topic for me this month: leadership identity.
The truth is: in the constant swirl of self-doubt, negative self-talk and overall mental negativity bias, we all need to hear the following words early and often:
Who you are as a leader is worth multiplying.
Fresh & passionate leadership lies at the intersection of consistent vision and identity affirmation.
If you have even one person in your life who counts on you, a child, a friend, a co-worker or mentee, then you are a leader. You have tremendous influence. And the “stuff” that’s inside you-all the character and competency and heart and faith-is worth multiplying in the next generation of leaders.
I hope you are encouraged by this month end post.
