As leaders we are either givers or takers. We give life or we take like. I know this sounds hard, but it’s the truth. Those who take from others are always trying to get others to do their stuff their way. Those who give life believe in people and want to lead them to success and significance. Here is a simple acrostic from life giving leader Billy Hornsby. You can find it in his book Success for the Second in Command.
