Change of seasons means leadership is in the air


With the onset of  Spring, people seem to have a bit more spring in their step, a little more energy and perhaps a little more desire to try something new and different. The days are certainly longer and a bit brighter and with ever-so cautious news that perhaps we’ve seen the economy finally bottom out, I think it’s cause for celebration. To me, sSpring is the leader of all seasons. It clearly has the characteristics of a great leader. It brings hope to thousands if not millions that the winter snows will finally give way to green grass. For farmers and crop growers, it means the hope of a profitable growing season will soon be under way. It means new growth, a chance for renewal – a fresh start. Spring is a good communicator, too. Warm sunshine highlights our faces. New buds pop up looking for the light. Spring seems to tell us that everything is going to be alright. And soon spring will lead us into sSummer — the season of vacations! Learn from sSpring’s examples. What can you do this sSpring to bring hope and leadership to your customers, vendors and employees? Create your own definition of “sSpring” and communicate it. It’s easy to be a follower like Summer, but in order to lead like Spring, you simply have to break through the top layer to be heard.
