Part of being a leader I am finding is being the anchor when life’s storms come along. An Anchor is part of the ship that keeps it grounded and from blowing off course. It keeps it from capsizing through its weight and design.
Likewise, when trials come to an organization, leaders are the ones who secure that organization through their design of plans. People on a boat trust the anchor to get them through, as must others trust the leaders.
While this is just one tiny aspect of being a leader, I think it is an important one. Without the anchor, the boat will capsize and eventually sink in the intense storms. Likewise, without a solid leader, the organization will fail in those days of immense trial.
Storms are coming. Will you be the anchor?
