Why We Lead #1375 

by Sue Hawkes

As a leader, you have the honor of caring for the tone of your culture daily.  

Some days, that may feel like a privilege and other days it may feel like a burden. 

What’s the difference? It’s how you’re relating to the complex beings around you and the interpretation you have about how they “should” be versus how they “are.” 

I often say, business is easy, humans are not.  

How you relate to their complexity is a reflection of you, not them. To lead means to do so when it’s inconvenient, uncomfortable, and challenging.  

Should you forget for a moment, please remember your business is simply an offering in the world. Without people, it will die. 

Leadership means remembering “why” when things become muddled. Complacency is the enemy.
