Spiritual Leadership

Growing your leadership influence calls for a courageous character core. Your followers and family are watching you during this Era of Exponential Growth. They are keeping a firm eye on the virtues you live everyday. For many leaders, the word “virtues” is confusing.  Let's be real - how many times do you use "virtue" in your everyday conversations?!? What about "prudence” or “temperance”? If you're like me, those aren't sprinkled into my speech. Especially when I'm hanging out with my grandchildren.

My childhood years come to mind while writing this Leadership Development series....as well as my prayer for eagle-eye vision. I grew up on a cattle ranch. Not a sprawling, luxurious ranch a movie star buys to escape a crazy life. This was more like a Laura-Ingalls-Wilder-Little-House-on-the-Prairie ranch. Our home was an eight-hundred-square-foot tar-papered homestead shack. Not bad, except that we had no running water. Yes, I used an outhouse every day of my life, until I was thirteen years old. Looking back now, I think - How did we do it!!??
