Leading with Courage, Compassion and Celebration
April 9, 2020
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

A passage from the book Art of Leadership: Leading Early Childhood Organizations talks about the need for leaders to have courage, compassion and the ability to celebrate small victories.

“Heart-centered leaders know they must help set the tone they want in their organizations by focusing more on what’s working well than on what’s not. Management guru Tom Peters, author of many acclaimed books such as In Search of Excellence (Peters & Waterman, 2006) and The Pursuit of Wow (1994), has been widely quoted as saying, ‘Celebrate what you want to see more of.’ Heart-centered leaders are great celebrators. They rejoice in effort as much as achievement. They notice courage, kindness, commitment, and celebrate those qualities often and exuberantly. They don’t wait for the ‘big success’ to plan a party, for they know that the loving energy people bring to their work is actually more important than any particular achievement.”
