Two quotes, two days in a row, from very different sources. Yesterday, from the great Sir Laurence Olivier. Today from one of my favorite authors, Dr. Seuss.
Here’s the quotation . . .
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
– Dr. Seuss, from The Lorax
Dr. Seuss clearly had a way with words. And in this case he reminds us of three important points.
1. Leadership isn’t about position, it is about action.
2. Everyone can lead.
3. Coming from a place of passion, or caring, is a fabulous starting point for leadership.
I could add to those three learning points, but sometimes it is best to just let them sit for you to reflect on.
Here are some questions to help you in that personal reflection.
Are you infusing your leadership with caring?
What actions are you taking today to lead more effectively and successfully?
