“It is not the place we occupy which is important, but the direction in which we move.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
Leading teams, regardless of the size or mission of that team, can be tough and gritty work. It can be an emotional roller coaster at times for all involved.
No matter how tough things may be, remember that any chance to lead a team is a gift. Earn that gift every day.
Be a happy and grateful leader and remember Holmes’ quote above… and keep moving your team and your mission forward.
