The power of a ‘leader’ is humbling when the authority vested in said leader is used for the best interests of the Region. True leaders are not those who strive to be first but those who are first to strive and who give their all for the success of the team. True leaders are first to see the need, envision the plan, and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader’s commitment, the power of the team is unleashed. I am unleashing the the team.
