Leadership and Hope

Leadership is the hope that we can change the things that need to be changed and create what we cannot now imagine.

Hope gives us the courage to move forward, the power to forgive, and the grace to keep the promises we have made.

Hope dispels fears.

Hope readies us for round two.

Hope holds our heads above water and gives us permission to regroup when we are tired.

Hope redeems mistakes and prompts the optimism and resilience of a leader.
