Ultimately, your ability to lead is directly connected to your ability to inspire. It is when we focus on impact that we build an army. But leaders must first understand that leadership is not a privilege, it is a responsibility. Leadership goes beyond our role and leaders must  help others to learn, grow and succeed. Most importantly, leaders must embody the behaviours they want to see and lead by example, with concrete actions.

This is how we must create and lead the organizations of the future, with purpose being the lighthouse of all our decisions. What matters most is not how high we climb, but rather the impact we can have on the people we serve.
