Leadership is about our choices. There are consequences and rewards. Some choices bring short term rewards, but long-term consequences, while others have short term consequences, but bring long term rewards.
We may not always have a choice for our environment or situation, but we all have the choice how we respond.
My life has been full of good and bad choices. I have learned from both and each choice has shaped my life. I have also found that I cannot always choose my situation or environment, but I can choose how I respond when life happens.
People can also influence our choices. Both good and bad. Do you remember when you decided to volunteer? Someone probably influenced that choice.
Today, let’s be the leaders that influence others to choose Texas SHRM and be the role models for what good choices look like. It helps with discernment.
And always remember, people are watching our choices in the workplace, in our SHRM Chapters, in our community and in life...
