Leadership by Example
Like many, the events of the past several months – and in particular the past week – have been scary, confusing and troublesome on so many levels. How should I feel? What should I do? Where do I turn? How do I help?
In times like this, leaders lead, whether in a position of power or not.
A few weeks back, we published a post asking if Leadership is Your Superpower and shared some common “super” characteristics of leaders: integrity, selflessness, excellence, humility, perseverance, courage.
Today, we share the words of several leaders who are showing all of those characteristics in a time it is needed most.
“The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.”
