For A Leader

by DW Green — December 27, 2017

May those who work for you know You see and respect them

As 2017 draws to a close, I would like to thank our clients, business partners and vendors for your business and for your friendship. I’d like to thank each of you for the positive influence and impact you have had on my life and on my company. I am most grateful and appreciative of our relationships. I am honored to work with each of you. Thank you.

To acknowledge the end of the year, it seems both fitting and proper to share this leadership blessing with you. I am inspired by Mr. Donohue’s words and read them often.

 

 

For A Leader

John O’Donohue

 

May you have the grace and wisdom

To act kindly, learning

To distinguish between what is

Personal and what is not.

May you be hospitable to criticism.

May you never put yourself at the

center of things.

May you not act from arrogance but

out of service.

May you work on yourself,

Building up and refining the ways of

your mind.

May those who work for you know

You see and respect them.

May you learn to cultivate the art of

presence

In order to engage with those who

meet you.

When someone fails or disappoints

you,

May the graciousness with which

You engage

Be their stairway to renewal and

refinement.

May you treasure the gifts of the

mind

Through reading and creative

thinking

So that you continue as a servant of

the frontier

Where the new will draw its

enrichment from the old,

And you never become

functionary.

May you know the wisdom of deep

listening,

The healing of wholesome words,

The encouragement of the

appreciative gaze,

The decorum of held dignity,

The springtime edge of the bleak

question.

May you have a mind that loves

Frontiers

So that you can evoke the bright fields

That lie beyond the view of the

regular eye.

May you have good friends

To mirror your blind spots.

May leadership be for you

A true adventure of growth.
