WELCOME TO THE VALIANT LEADER!
inspirational speaker, workshop facilitator, panelist, consultant and community strategist.
My journey has taken me from student musician to law school graduate, attorney, municipal court judge, ministry administrator, retail manager and now a nonprofit executive. And along the way, I observed, served with, and coached leaders who impacted my transformation as a leader.
One of my favorite leadership quotes is by John Maxwell: “Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another.” Each of us leads in our sphere of influence whether it is in the home, workplace, community or church. Stewarding that influence is a purposeful mindset that requires humility, compassion and courage.
The valiant leader is often the person who consistently demonstrates three qualities: heart, wisdom and action.
The heart or passion to accomplish a goal, address a social issue, establish a business or pursue an action of personal importance. In the words of Simon Sinek, “your why.”
The wisdom to discover what to do (or not do) in pursuit of your heart’s passion and harnessing passion in a way that is both effective and fruitful.
And, finally, taking the action needed for the first or next step.
Our growth as leaders, wherever we have influence, depends upon the courage to consistently embrace all three.
Are you ready to release the valiant leader within you?
