A leader who empowers and inspires …

… is a leader

who shows up, speaks up, and steps up.

who asks “How can I help you be more successful?”

who models vulnerability, humility, and courage.

who wants to know what she might be missing.

who knows when he has to withdraw and let go.

who demonstrates the value of both work and play.

who focuses on what her people are doing that’s working.

who says it as it is and who wants to hear it as it is.

who finishes with: “Is there anything else I can do for you?”
