Author Andy Stanley once said, “To become a leader worth following, you must give time and attention to the inner man.”
In conversations with several industry leaders regarding the ongoing battle to find a life/work balance, many expressed frustration with being a “B” in all areas of life: at work, at home, in relationships, taking care of health, etc. I can relate. One theme continued to surface during our conversations: It’s easy to find a leader we admire professionally or personally (e.g. husband/wife, father/mother, and friend). But, it becomes a lot tougher to find leaders who exemplify what we hope to be professionally and personally.
