Good Wednesday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: leaders lead by example, not by intimidation. The most effective leaders are often times the quietest. They don’t need to yell, throw fits or threaten people’s jobs. They lead by walking with their followers and motivating them to do better, think smarter and make better decisions. You can carry a whip, scream and be critical, but you’ll be much more respected and impressive if you submerge yourself into the group of people you’re leading and work with them.
