Giving and Getting

Some leaders give.

Some people get.

A few leaders give to get.

Others just want the getting without the commitment.

But the best leaders, those who are servant leaders, know that you can not give what you have not got.

These people work hard to stay clear, balanced and centered in the midst of their busy days. They lead and work with their minds and their hearts.  

The result? 

They have the time and the energy to give, and to care about giving.  

And those who receive it, know that it comes from an authentic place. Integrity is a word and a feeling when interacting with these leaders. They do not breed false emotions, waste relationships, or implement situational ethics. They do not role model hate, biases, or prejudices. 

When true leaders give, others welcome the gift, and value the insights learned from the time together.

This week work on becoming a servant leader.  Then, you will give from a place of clarity and centeredness, and this will make all the difference in the world.
