Curiosity may have killed the cat, but generosity brings life to all parties.
As leaders, we have the privilege to give in many ways. Our generosity is not limited to our
financial resources. There is no better feeling than to give your resources to another person and causes in need. “When one candle lights another, there are now two lit candles.”
We can give our time and energy to causes. Volunteerism is our honor and privilege.
Organizations, whether they be civic, charitable, or industry need talents and skills of effective leaders. We all have the time. It is true. The old saying,”busy people get things done.” Our communities need our wisdom, talents and skills to guide and direct the impact of the organization.
As leaders, we should always be mentoring. We should always be helping another person grow, succeed, and find their true passion. Remember, “All that is not given is lost.”
I’m learning, that true generosity is a “HEART” thing. Giving for the right reason — unconditionally, with no expected return, in my view must come from the heart. So, during this season of giving, find organizations you can help, people you can mentor, and give of your time, talents, and support. Leadership always extends beyond the boardroom and into our communities.
