Last night was perfect. After nearly two weeks in Africa working with Kenyan high school students, our baby girl came home.
The smile on her face was a great reminder that leaders are better when they serve.
First Lady, Betty Ford, once remarked, “I don’t think there’s anything as wonderful in life as being able to help someone else.”
Is your emotional tank full? Is there a smile on your face because you have been consistently adding value to others?
The great thing about being a servant leader is you don’t have to go around the world to find your smile. Usually, all it takes is a walk down the hall at the office. Or maybe even a word of encouragement across the kitchen at home.
As I have written before, great leaders Think Others First.
Open your eyes today and find someone to serve. But if you do, be prepared to smile. Remember, there’s nothing as wonderful in life as being able to help someone else.
Leadership Begins at Home,
What is one way a leader can add value to those around him?
