It Will Take Leadership

Today we tend to celebrate money, power and celebrity. To create a better tomorrow, I think we need to celebrate integrity, contribution, and creativity. This is leadership. Creating this change will take leadership.

It will take leadership to demonstrate how operating with integrity, caring for and contributing to the interests of others, and continually creating better ways of doing things contributes to our individual and common interests.

It will take leadership to inspire and reward people who take personal responsibility for the interests of others.

It will take leaders who take responsibility for our common social interests as well as for the interests of the people they serve directly.

It will take leaders to excite leadership in others.
