Courage is not the absence of fear, it is doing what you know to be right, in the presence of fear.
Effective Leadership is enabled by one’s willingness to be authentic. When we can be authentically ourselves, we empower others to do the same. When we all live from our strengths while acknowledging our shortcomings, we will succeed together. And that is effective Leadership!
