Leadership isn’t about YOU

“Here’s the great secret about leadership: it’s not about you. It’s about making other people better. Leadership is more about trust you have earned than the authority you have been granted. You must earn the right for people to follow you.”

I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with you. I thank God on this Thanksgiving weekend for you and the trust you have given me to lead us on this journey.

While I am thankful each day, I know I am still earning the right to have you follow me. Trust is earned, and in some cases I know I am still working to earn your trust. I strive to be Above the Line each day; our journey together this year has had a profound impact on me. I hope this work is stirring “in you” as well.
