The idea is about being present in the moment. It is challenging to provide good, spiritual leadership if we are not there when needed.
But, we need to see something deeper in this idea of being present.
Beyond the physical, the thought is one of being engaged intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
Leaders must be present, focused on the person and/or situation. To be physically present, but unengaged leaves the impression we do not care, we are distracted, or our priorities are not in the best interest of those we lead.
Be present, in that moment and give undivided attention to the other person.
