I advocate for you to lead where you stand.
Leading is tough. It takes courage. You sometimes have to hurt people you care about. Sometimes you will be criticized. Leaders put themselves out there, which results in evaluation.
But everything rises and falls on leadership. When you’re the right one to lead and you opt-out, others suffer.
You don’t lead because it gives you privilege or reward. You lead because it’s the right thing to do.
Your family depends on your leadership.
Your community depends on your leadership.
Our enterprise depends on your leadership.
