What’s at the core of being a responsible leader?

“Trust is a leap of faith rooted in optimism.” 

It means giving away some control, which is easier said than done when you are talking to a bride and this is her most important day.

As a professional event planner, I often find myself the ring leader in a circus. I have learned to develop skills that are both confident and humble and maybe the most important skill is a willingness to listen and learn, being wiser than simply being caught up in the moment.

I have also discovered in my trials and tribulations that responsible leaders have a guiding purpose that enables them to focus their energy and activity, therefore knowing what distractions to avoid to get the job done. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t days that I feel overwhelmed, but I have to remind myself to take a deep breath and step forward into the space and movement of any situation with an “I can and I will” mindset to impact situations and systems for the greater good.
