It’s about time leaders ask: Who Am I?

It is refreshing to see how the definition of leadership is transforming from “skills” CEO’s “use” to get the job done, to leadership about bringing who we are as leaders into what we do to as leaders, and the ongoing definition of ourselves and our purpose, and as such the positive change we have the responsibility for making in our organization.

Exceptional leaders begin by answering the question “Who am I?”  Sustainable leaders are built to last, who invest in developing others and recognize the effect of who they are on the people who surround them … and beyond.

Sustainable leaders recognize the “ripple effect” of their actions.  When you throw a rock into a pond … the ripples go across the top of the water, down to the bottom and reverberate back to continually define that leader going forward.

Sustainable, effective leaders take responsibility for how they show up and the ripples they create.
