If we are old enough, we probably remember receiving our first AARP application.
Perhaps we threw it away, denying the reality of aging. Maybe we were excited to receive the benefits associated with an older lifestyle.
While AARP stands for American Association of Retired Persons, we may not feel quite there, at any age. Consider a leadership angle.
Accomplish: Leaders make things happen.
Attitude: Leaders set the tone for everyone. Invest in the right attitude.
Respect: Respect is earned and given. In order to receive it, we must be willing to give it.
Presence: Show up! Our presence provides security and direction for others.
Growing in leadership doesn’t always come with age, but we can work to put all the components in the right place.
