Growing up, I played a lot of sports, which led me to feel that success was based on achievements others could see. I wanted accolades or external recognition to prove that I was worthy of what I earned. Throughout my life, I’ve struggled with trusting people on a deeper level, so being able to show what I could do was important to me. Now, I have a very different idea of leadership. Alignment Leadership has shown me that what I offer as a person—my dedication—is what determines my value as a leader, not achievement. With Alignment Leadership, I don’t have to worry about resting on any laurels. Serving others through my own unique strengths is what truly makes me worthy to lead.
