“I’m taking more risks.”
Those were the leader’s first words to me. And when inspired leaders say something profound, and I believe they are speaking on behalf of many of us, I simply record the words and share. This is one of those cases.
“I’ve made a commitment to my team,” he said. “I will set a different paradigm for how to lead. I’m not going to diminish my leadership. I’m not going to dial it down. I won’t allow others to dial it down. I’ve been given gifts and tools – and I’m going to us them without apology.
“Before, I’d wait for the evidence to prove it was time for me to step forward. But, I fundamentally believe leadership happens when we don’t wait for such evidence. So I’m stepping forward.
“I must seize the moment I have now. I’m determined to be successful at whatever I touch.
“And I’ll equip others to be the same.”
