As I take my seat as the Chair of the Leadership Collier Foundation (LFC), I reflect on what it takes to lead. While many of us would say it takes heart and passion, I believe it takes guts.
Your guts, or your intestinal fortitude, have long been associated with courage, just as the heart has been with love and passion. Remember that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you had to make a hard leadership decision? Yeah, that was your courage being summoned up from your core and letting you know you have got the guts to lead.
