Leadership Poem

The self authentic
Resolutely turned inside out
Deep core manifest
Purpose-driven intent

Committed in relationship
Seeking mutual purpose
Influencing connections and direction

Action and transformation in the world
Demands personal transformation of leader
An arduous path that calls for

Life-time commitment
Sometimes agony
Sometimes exhilaration
Always risky

This personal stretching requires
Courage, commitment, sacrifice,
All in service

Transcending comfortable preferences
Balancing limits
With counterpoint skills
Interpret the situation

Influence the others
Work for the good of the whole.

M. L. Menikheim
