~ Dr. Martin Luther King
Martin Luther King was a TRANSFORMATIONAL leader, a visionary who was comfortable taking risk and venturing into un-chartered territories.
He had the ability to DREAM and then to stand tall against naysayers to follow his VISION.
He was one of the most effective communicators in the history of mankind. He started a movement by inspiring and igniting an emotion that very few could do with the same level of effectiveness. While most of us cannot expect to hold a candle to Dr. King in regards to communication and oratory skills, we can all aspire to be more like him…to be just a little better.
Dr. King was an inspirational leader. He would commonly say, “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do keep moving forward.” His point was keep moving forward even if only at an inch at a time. A source of inspiration and a good leader is who has the ability to be both inspired and to also inspire helps.
Finally, he was a leader who was willing to walk the talk.
Sometimes the most powerful messages can be the shortest .
Have a great week.
