A strong leader grows much like a tree does. Over time, you learn to develop everything needed for the future. Its not a linear growth: all systems grow together, little by little, as they remain connected by the essential sap of the tree.
After years of reaching up for sunshine and reaching deeply for water and nutrients, you develop ample roots to support what is visible to others, sturdy branches to support your work of providing what is natural for you to provide – that fruit of your life’s work, in the right season, again and again.
And much like a tree, a good leader supports others, by serving them within healthy relationships.
All of this growth, service, and the wealth that accumulates naturally out of that, are dependent on the trunk and roots of the tree being cared for and healthy.
