Helping vs Serving others. What’s the difference?
What an ugly sweater taught me about leadership? Servant Leadership.
he night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s Theatre, did you know he was carrying:
-Two pairs of glasses.
-A small velvet eyeglass cleaner.
-An ivory pocketknife.
-A large handkerchief with “A. Lincoln” stitched in red.
-A tiny pencil.
-A brass sleeve button.
-A fancy watch fob.
-And a brown wallet with a Confederate five-dollar bill, and eight newspaper clippings.

o you ever struggle with letting your leaders lead? Do you know of a leader that wants EVERYTHING done his or her own way?
You know the type. They will tell you how they want things done. Then after watching you do it “the wrong way”, they will step in and “show” you how to do it. Not once, not twice, but multiple times. Before you know it they have done your job for you.
