“‘Lives not fully lived are the worst kinds of stewardship.’ I love that. As leaders it’s important to live your life well. You steward your life as a leader. You don’t want to waste it. I think that’s so important to leading change. The mission and purpose should drive the change. It’s worth the risk.”
“‘Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the will to move forward despite the fear.’ When you’re a change leader, there’s a whole lot to be afraid of… Courage is not not having fear, but it’s the willingness that you’re going to move forward despite the fear. Your vision is so compelling, that even if you’re afraid to go, what matters is that you succeed.”
