The quote today comes from Daisaku Ikeda. He says “A person, who no matter how desperate the situation, gives others hope, is a true leader. “
Pretty powerful stuff, I am sure you would agree – but what does that mean to me?
Well on a personal level, it means that irrespective of how badly (or well for that matter) that person uses his or her wisdom to assess my problems in my business, they give me not only the best possible advice, but also encouragement and motivation.
It’s the person who, without talking down to me, without being smug, without the drama and the emotion, gives me practical advice on “how to” fix up my problem.
It’s the person who points me in the right direction – it’s the person who helps me stay focused on what my goals are.
Are you such a person? Are you a true leader?
