I realize this week’s emails have had significant emotional intensity. That is a reflection of my experiences last week and a good lesson within itself: as leaders, we manifest our thoughts and feeling into actions, whether we realize it or not.
I will try and lighten up next week, but not today.
After you die, what do you want people to say about you?
My cousin attended a memorial service for a beloved member of his community – one of those rare individuals who had an incredible impact on so many people’s lives.
What did people say about him?
Person after person talked about how when they were with this person, he made them feel like the most important person in the world.
I can’t say that being fully present with others is enough, but it is the foundation for everything else.
Don’t make leadership harder than it is. Be present. Listen. Be human.
Have a great weekend!
