Conversations for Changemakers: Leading with Passion and Finding Hope
Leaders are people who make things happen. It’s the passionate people that take the biggest risks, step up to the plate, and help make the biggest leaps forward within their personal, professional, and volunteer life.
To lead means to move others to action or to follow you on your mission. Passion is the infectious, essential ingredient. People who really excel in their career or excel in life have a strong passion for what they do. That passion makes the world a better place.
