To be or not to be…

Leadership is about influence – making a positive difference in the lives of others.  Often when we think about exemplary leaders individuals such as Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King JR, Nelson Mandela or Sir Winston Churchill spring to mind.  Consider the story of Hannah Taylor:

At five years old Hannah Taylor witnessed a man digging through a dumpster on a cold winter day in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  Shocked and saddened by the fact that he needed to do this to get food, Hannah resolved she would help somehow, someway… [Ladybug foundation.ca].

At the tender age of 8 years old, Hannah became the founder of the Ladybug foundation, an organization dedicated to helping the homeless.  To date the foundation has raised well over two million dollars to help the homeless.

Exemplary leaders, they are not the most famous people nor are they necessarily found in key positions.  Exemplary leaders are people who by their example of authenticity and integrity inspire us to do things that we would not have done and to be people that we would not have been on our own.  They inspire us to want to leave a positive legacy.

  1. I believe everything posted made a bunch of sense. However, think on this, suppose you wrote
    a catchier title? I am not saying your information is not solid., however suppose you added something
    to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean To be or not to be…
    – RaphSongMusic is kinda vanilla. You could glance at
    Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article headlines
    to grab people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.
