The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude. Be kind, but not weak. Be bold, but not bully. Be thoughtful, but not lazy. Be humble, but not timid. Be proud, but not arrogant.
Despite the challenges, I constantly remind myself that I am prepared to take advantage of the great opportunities presented to me. This makes me ever ready to take all that is coming in my way positively.
As a leader, I believe that leading the team does not mean ruling the people and getting work done. It is walking with them and doing work together. Being a great leader also means to never stop learning. I constantly pick up new skills in order to be someone my team can depend on. One very important way to do great work is to love what you do.
And I absolutely love what I’m doing here at East Coast Podiatry!
