A while back I wrote about what I consider the core of leadership, passion. Recently Change This shared a manifesto on passion by Dr Mani Sivasubramanian. As I read the manifesto I could not help but be reminded of why I believed passion was so central to leadership. Essentially the fire in the core of a person is passion. Dr Mani captures the essence of this argument better than most, so I share with you the link to go read it.
What is your passion have you found it?
Have you sought it out?
Has it found you?
You know this concept of passion is tied closely to purpose. Often they are the same. When a leader is connected to their purpose they can tap a deep reservoir of energy that would otherwise be unattainable. This reservoir is their passion lying within. This ability is so critical to leadership success.
