Leadership of the Heart

IceCanoeBy data I know.
By reason I trust.
By faith I believe.

As a leader,
I can use data to convince people to follow.

As a leader,
I can use reason to persuade people to follow.

But in a place beyond logic and reason,
when people have faith in me as a leader and belief in the vision,
then leadership of the heart occurs.

This requires relationship.

To lead by heart is an honor.
But more so it is humbling, for leader and follower together
serve a purpose greater than any one alone could ever realize.

When you follow, follow your heart,
and choose your leaders wisely.
And when by heart you are chosen to lead
grab hold of that which you could never possess

and lead on!
