Encouraging Those You Lead

Mother Teresa said, “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are endless.

Everyone enjoys and benefits from encouragement.

As leaders, we have the power to lift up those we lead by encouraging them. Encouragement is simply pouring courage into others. We can all use a dose of courage.
