Rivers flow with energy and purpose to those people and regions that need the water—that need its sustainability and life-giving properties to thrive and grow, flourish and survive. So, when you set out to determine the kind of leader you want to be, think “river” and not “reservoir.” A reservoir stores up that source of encouragement and nourishment, and it never gets to where it needs to go. But a river brings the source to where it’s needed most. A river adds value, while a reservoir hoards it. Choose to be the river in people’s lives.
