Leadership Minute: The Privilege


Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed. – Mwai Kibaki

This is perhaps one of the key essentials every leader needs to understand. When you exercise your influence as a leader it should be to this end: to better the lives of others. Think if you will of the most influential leaders who have inspired and made their mark on your life. This should be the motive and objective of your leadership. When we commit to elevating others around us and leaving the world a better place we are fulfilling the higher calling of our leadership. Leadership truly is a privilege.  Use it to make better those around you.
