"Care is the driving force of leadership." - Michael Kouly
The core of leadership is care.
It is care that will make you accept the sacrifices that are required to mobilize people.
It is care that will make you pay the attention needed to lead.
It is care that will fuel you with the energy that is required to do the hard work of leadership.
It is nothing but care that will keep you in the game when the same people, whom you are trying to help through your acts of leadership, resist and fight you just because they don't see the potential brightness of their future the way you do.
Do you really care about those whom you wish to lead? Do you really care about the cause that you are trying to serve? The answer to such questions will determine the fate of your leadership journey.
