Leadership Minute: Virtuous Leadership

fogive

Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave. – Indira Gandhi

There are moments for all leaders when forgiveness needs to be extended and when it needs to be received. Leadership at times is hard. In the heat of the moment an unkind word can be spoken, feelings can be hurt, and if left unchecked resentments can grow. But the virtuous leader is the one who is not too big to admit mistakes, extend forgiveness, and humble enough to ask for it. The greatest influence you can have as a leader is to be a healer. Life is just too short to be anything less.
