Scott Hodge on Leadership.

In September’s Ho‘ohana Learning Links I introduced you to Scott Hodge and his .:WeEbLeLaNd:. Weblog. Well today he posted a gem, and if you are a manager you have to read it.

Take this link for Scott’s post on Why leadership is important to me.

Posting it means his written words must be made good on: it’s a promise he is bound to keep. When you write something like this it is a commitment to self-transformation. It is a commitment to honesty, integrity, and excellence.

When you give voice to words like Scott’s, they can no longer lie dormant within you. You’ve given yourself a call to action, and there’s no backing down. It takes passion, bravery, and unwavering belief. It takes brutal honesty with yourself as to who you are, and who you need to become.

Even better, is that Scott personally shared such a heartfelt and honest message with his staff. When did you last share a message like this with all the people you lead and manage? Do they know why you are committed to leadership, and why it’s important to you?

It may be the most important message you will ever give them.
