At some point, we all face the challenge of leaving one position for another. Imagine the difference when we do so with the mindset of not stepping down, but stepping aside.
We all get older. As we do, we need an awareness of what we are able and unable to accomplish as leaders.
One of the best ways to help the work continue is not by stepping down, but stepping aside.
Stepping down brings an element of finality and completion.
Stepping aside offers a way to help as the work continues. It brings a powerful element of mentorship for the one who follows.
