As a leader, I’m learning that the job is to facilitate growth. Just like a gardener tending to his or her crop, you have to work the soil and ensure the conditions are right. This changes everyday. Some days you have to plant, some days you water, some days you fertilize, some days you do nothing and let nature take its course. The key, I’m learning, is to keep the soil ready and keep pouring into the process. A lot of people get stuck on trying to do too much at one time. Trust the process. Be present. Add value. Listen. Learn. Evolve.

Thank you General McCrystal for the great analogy recently.

Leading is gardening…over time and with the right approach, the seeds you plant in your family, your team and in your career will bear fruit.
