"What we need right now is leadership. And if you’re waiting for a politician, you’re going to be waiting a long time. We need leadership 1) in your home and 2) in the culture. We need cultural leaders. We need individuals and organizations to rise up and provide inspiring, convincing leadership that will lead to conversions of mind and heart."

This quote is from a recent article written by Matthew Warner of the National Catholic Register. He wrote the piece following the outcome of our national elections.

Regardless of one’s religious or political affiliations, Warner offers readers some valid perspectives on how to create change in our country. His ideas align with our belief that business is the most powerful force through which we can make a positive impact on the world.

No single politician can possibly make the world a better place. But if more business leaders would strive to send their team members home with a sense of fulfillment, we would see a profound impact on the quality of relationships at home –resulting in improved marriages and improved environments for the precious children raised in those marriages.

Within each of us lies the capability – and the opportunity – to shape the lives of those within our sphere of influence! We need to quit looking for politicians to address the issues we face in this world and simply own the responsibility that leadership in our places of work, our communities, our homes can change the world to the way it was intended to be!
