Thought for Today - October 17, 2023

To be a leaders means it isn’t about you.

Being a leader isn't about standing in the spotlight, soaking up the applause. It's about shining that spotlight on your team, amplifying their strengths, and celebrating their achievements. Leadership is less about "me" and more about "we." It's about fostering an environment where everyone feels seen, heard, and empowered to bring their best selves to the table.

Think of the best leaders you've come across. They probably weren’t the loudest in the room or the ones always at the forefront. Instead, they were the ones who listened more than they spoke, who asked questions to understand, and who made decisions with the team's best interests at heart. They understood that their success was intrinsically tied to the success of those they led.

Leadership is a privilege, a responsibility, and at times, a weighty burden. But true leaders know that it's not about their ego or their legacy. It's about creating a ripple effect of positive impact, of empowering others to step up, and of leaving an organization or a team better than they found it.

So, if you're stepping into a leadership role, remember this: it's not about you. It's about the collective, the journey, and the legacy you're building together. Lead with heart, with purpose, and with the understanding that your role is to serve and uplift. Cheers to leading with humility and grace!
