A leader who has character focuses on “being good” along with “doing well.”
A leader who has character gets the task done and builds the relationship.
For me, that’s the heart of character-based leadership—a knowledge and love of the good through which one creates positive and sustainable change. It’s using your head to manage and your heart to lead, whether at work or play because life, love, and leadership all intersect.
The members of the Lead Change Group walk the talk for being good and doing well.
Multiple times over the last two years this group has reached out to support one another—both privately and publicly. All giving and receiving that goes on is incredible.
And the Lead Change Group is at it again…this time in a fund-raising effort for Dan Rockwell, aka the LeadershipFreak.
The Lead Change Group is giving many people—through the reach of social media—the opportunity to participate, too.
While this time of year has been dubbed the season for giving, the Lead Change Group has expanded the giving season to year-long and never-ending.
Heart-warming. Inspiring. Encouraging all of us to give the gift of character and compassion every day.
