Leadership Minute: Keep Growing!


F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.” Hang around in leadership long enough and you will experience defeat. It’s inevitable but it’s not final. The challenge for you as a leader is not to allow a single defeat to define you or prevent you from moving forward. Growing as a leader is filled with adventure, risk, setbacks, exhilaration, and disappointments. All of these experiences combined serve to mold your character and give you strength to proceed. It’s as you come though these experiences that you learn to appreciate the growth process and you will be a stronger leader as a result. Keep growing!
