Why, What If, And How

Most managers support the process and are good at getting results. You don’t want to be like most managers. You want to inspire others on a journey of Why. Not What If. Especially not How.

To inspire others to join you on the journey requires leadership. Author Simon Sinek spells it out:

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

Leadership is not a title but a practice. It’s about the little things done consistently:

  • Making others feel safe.
  • Giving others responsibilities.
  • Giving others opportunities.
  • Making others feel valued.
  • Understanding others.
  • Caring for others.

Sinek insists:

Those whom foster relationships who take care of others will find themselves in the position where others can be trusted to have your back.

It’s your choice to be a leader. You don’t need permission. You don’t need a title. You must decide to care for others: inspiring them to dream more, learn more, do more and become more.
