This time of year thousands of speeches are given at high school and college commencement exercises. I am especially aware of this since tomorrow, I will be giving one at A.T. Still University. Because of the occasion at least one of the components of all of these speeches will be to inspire the assembled graduates and their families at a critical time in life.
In our roles in corporate leadership, we may not find ourselves giving these types of addresses, yet, the messages they contain you will find to be incredibly useful for you in other situations requiring the best of your leadership communication or leadership influence.
Because of that I was pleased to find that Dan McCarthy in his Great Leadership blog had shared and summarized some messages from outstanding graduations addresses.
I encourage you to make reading this post one of your leadership activities of the day. It will not only inspire you, but will give you insights and ideas that you can use in inspiring others in all of your leadership roles.
