Leadership and Legacy: Leadership is the ability of an individual or a group of individuals to influence and guide followers or other members of an organization. Everyone has had to be a leader at some point in their life, whether it is coaching kids, guiding your family or chairing a meeting. Freemasonry encourages all Masons to be leaders and is structured in a way that allows each man to hone his leadership skills. In the General Charge it lays out some of the characteristics of a good leader. These include integrity, administration of justice, resolution, leading by example and always working for the cause of good. A good leader will always try to bring the best out of people. A good leader understands that decisions and actions have an impact on everyone around. A leader’s legacy will not only be reflected in the goals accomplished but by those people touched in a positive way, inspiring future leaders.
I hope I have inspired some of you with your goals and leadership aspirations over these past couple of years .
