Lead­er­ship — A Les­son from Mar­tin Luther King Jr.

This morn­ing a client of mine emailed me what he sent to his employ­ees this AM about lead­er­ship. I got his per­mis­sion to share it with my read­ers, and I hope you will find it encour­ag­ing and inspir­ing too. I know Josh very well, and he real­ly does care about his team. He is build­ing a cul­ture in his busi­ness where employ­ees can grow and feel appreciated! Hi A.ALLBRIGHT Team, Ear­ly this morn­ing, as I was read­ing about Mar­tin Luther King Jr., on this day that we reflect on his life, I was remind­ed of what we try teach at AALL­BRIGHT about lead­er­ship. Do you remem­ber what we speak about in a crew leader meet­ings about who is a leader?” and what makes a leader in our com­pa­ny?” Do you remem­ber the answer? It appears Mar­tin Luther King Jr. knew all about lead­er­ship. In fact, he learned it from some­one who spoke about it over 2000 years ago. in 1968, Mar­tin Luther King Jr. quot­ed Jesus’ words in Mark 10. Then he said, Every­body can be great, because every­body can serve. You don’t have to have a col­lege degree to serve.… You only need a heart full of grace, a soul gen­er­at­ed by love.” When Jesus’ dis­ci­ples quar­reled about who would get the places of hon­or in heav­en, He told them: Who­ev­er desires to become great among you shall be your ser­vant. And who­ev­er of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ran­som for many” (Mark 10:43 – 45). Please share with your crew that any­one can be a leader or take on a lead­er­ship posi­tion by just help­ing anoth­er. It is at that moment you are a true leader. Have an ALL­BRIGHT Day!
