Is it time to ignite YOUR inner-Olympian? Effective leadership is critical at a time when the lack of effective leadership abounds. You face a choice, we all face a choice every day that can change your life and the lives of others. Will you focus on what you can get or what you can contribute? Will you be caught in a vortex of greed, ego, fear, negativity that will lead you to forsake what matters most for what, in the end, matters least? Leadership starts from within, it grows and is driven by the hope, courage, and integrity that remain our greatest treasures. Click here to read more about the power within.
What is the causal mechanism of leadership? The causal mechanism of leadership is the integrity of our ambition because that which does not create value for others will eventually crash, burn, wither or die. Purpose equals profit on a multiplicity of levels and nothing can replace the faith, hope, courage, integrity, and humanity that have defined and will always define great leaders.
