I was attending the CLA luncheon here in Colorado Springs today and sharing some of the quotes from one of the members of the crisis team who provided leadership during the Waldo Canyon Fire, Jerri Marr. When I looked up from the ideas I was sharing I saw that one of her quotes was my 1000th tweet.
And I thought to myself, that is worth commemorating. So this blog is that opportunity. The quote was “The first and last task of a leader is to keep hope alive.”
What a powerful idea. You as a leader are tasked with keeping hope alive in those that you are leading. How are you doing at this important task? Any examples to share?
