I came across this quote from my hero/mentor: Winston Churchill (no, they don’t have to be alive to learn from them):
Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe.
Now that cuts to the heart of what leadership is about. Not position. Passion. Not logic. Inspiration. Not direction. Conviction.
It’s time to make sure our HEARTS are FULLY ENGAGED. Then and only then will others enlist in our army and march with us into battle!
