I spend a lot of time thinking and writing about how to lead at work, however recently, I turned my focus to the home. We showed this video at church as part of our sermon series, “A Journey Home.” The video depicts how words spoken to us as children can have a lasting impact on our lives. Every time I see this video, I get emotional thinking of how easily what I say as a parent can stick with my son. I want to be a great dad, and I don’t have all the answers, but I do know that I have been called to be a leader, not only at in my professional life, but more so in my home. I am doing my best to make sure that if my little guy wants to play, they know that they always come before “Daddy’s Work.”
Take a lesson from this video and make sure your kids know you love them. Make sure that as you lead your teams in your profession, that you’re also pouring yourself into leading at home.
