I asked a few people what this meant to them. They all gave the standard “It’s not how you start,” or “Run YOUR race” response. To me, it says that your ability to not only be authentic but lead by example—with EXCELLENCE—makes the difference. As leaders, we set the standard for others to follow and acknowledge as a measure of success and EXCELLENCE in leadership. Which is why this responsibility should not be taken lightly or entrusted to just anyone.
What does the above statement mean to you? What is your definition of EXCELLENCE?
