I participated in a blog posted today by the International Association of Women Entrepreneurs that posed a question about the impact of Dr. King on their leadership and entrepreneurial style. My response is below.
7. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ~ An Inspirational Leader
Dr. King exhibited the absolute best in his leadership style. The strength of his mission was completely aligned with his kind and peaceful nature. I have certainly followed Dr. King’s leadership model, as I seek to call out the greatness in the people who work with me, in order to receive optimal results. Through his legacy, I have discovered my passions and my voice as a leader.
Inspiration + Effective Leadership + Gratitude = SUCCESS
I will add that a true leader is quite different than a manager. True leaders understand how to SERVE others.
How has Dr. King’s legacy impacted your leadership style?
