I have an advantage. I reach hundreds of people every week as a writer of this blog. I write about leadership, motivation, communication, work passion, and the latest topic going on in the US Government. This week I would like to do something a bit different. I am not going to write about the vision and mission every agency or team could adopt to help them achieve their mission (although I firmly believe in having both). I do not want to share tactics you can choose to implement in order to be a trustworthy leader (although I firmly believe in the positive impact of an effective leader). Today I hope the message you get from this blog post is geared toward the kindness and empathy we give to each other on a daily basis, both in and out of the work place.
I have shared some personal endeavors of my life with you in this blog; my current educational endeavor, individual encounters I have had with colleagues and clients, and other insights about my job. I have shared information about the leadership best practices of The Ken Blanchard Companies and I hope you have found these tidbits helpful. Today, I would like each visitor of this blog to share a random act of kindness they have completed and tell us how you felt afterwards. How did the act of kindness, no matter how big or small, set the tone for the rest of your day or week? After all, we ARE all leaders and when we share the love we have in our hearts with one another, that is the best form of leadership we can exhibit.
Happy holidays, Everyone! Enjoy this time. Share the love and kindness you possess with the rest of the world. Love and lead one another.
