The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.Theodore Hesburgh
I’m mainly asking myself this question: what is the noise I’m making? What does that trumpet blast sound like? Is it recognizable?
A greeting in one of the 11 National South African languages is “Sawubona.” It translates literally as: “I see you.” If the human heart’s deepest desire is to be seen, heard, and understood, then to Sawubona someone means “I see you, I hear you, and I understand you.”
With my family, the trumpet blast, or rather vision statement is a call to “Sawubona” each person they meet.
Personally and professionally it would be a similar call – the call to Servant Leadership. To see an individual’s needs and with balanced wisdom, respond appropriately.
What is the noise you are making?
