I used to think of leadership as something a person did. Guiding, instructing, inspiring in a directed way. But I have since come to see that it is much more than that.

Because everything is connected, every person on the planet is a leader. Whenever we act in the world we lead, because each person around us is affected by what we do. When we display kindness, we lead others to kindness through our example. When are teaching through everything we do.

Not many of us see ourselves that way. We think of leaders as being ‘chosen’, when in fact we simply ‘are’ leaders.

How can you lead today? How ARE you leading today?
