Do You Know Your Core Purpose?
June 10, 2019
We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.
-Malala Yousafzai

Mike Brown, in his book, Idea Magnets, asserts that the kind of leader who deserves the title Idea Magnet “makes sure his or her personal core purpose is solid. This grounding on what’s important extends to their teams and organizations.”

And in the book Leading Early Childhood Organizations, Nancy Rosenow writes about the importance of heart-centered leadership: “For many years, leaders were taught never to appear too emotional. In the past, administrators were often judged as too weak if they ever discussed concepts as ‘squishy’ as leading in a heart-centered way. Recently, though, this misunderstanding has been turned on its head, as more and more has been written about the need to enlist both head and heart in service to effective leadership...

A new understanding is coming into awareness as leaders increasingly embrace the fact that their effectiveness is grounded in a strong relationship with themselves.”
