The Thinking Leader

This is Volodymyr Zelenskiy the 6th president of Ukraine, who won by a landslide 73% last month.

Why is this man a true leader you may ask?

In his inauguration address, Zelenskiy urged ministers and government officials to resign if they aren’t willing to work for change. He urged Cabinet leaders and others not to put his portrait on their office walls.

“I really do not want my pictures in your offices, for the President is not an icon, an idol or a portrait,” he said. “Hang your kids’ photos instead, and look at them each time you are making a decision.”

If that is not the best leadership advice I have heard in a really long time, then you need to share in the comments section any advice that you have heard that is as good.
