How should help be defined? A quick look in the dictionary reveals a number of thoughts: making it easier [for someone] to do something by offering one’s services or resources; improve [a situation or problem], be of benefit to by assisting, serving, etc. and the list goes on.
The challenge has never been the definition, but the application. We must also learn there is a difference between helping and enabling (a discussion for another post).
Let us lead with the conviction that we will help others long term, eternally. Here is where the legacy of our leadership is determined.
