Today’s Message is: “Sum Total Day!” Why Not?

“What is the sum total of leadership? It’s how leaders are developed, become real, become whole, and a better leader and person. The sum total of leadership is all the past actions and events that make leaders who they really are today and how they will lead in the future. Those events and actions will shape and influence a leader’s moral compass, vision, purpose, and play a part in their future leadership journey. The sum total of leaders goes back to the very beginning of their lives, who they’ve met, the people that were around them, and the decisions they made along the way. What is the sum total of your traits as a leader?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
