Primal comes from a Latin word meaning “first.” The idea relates to the beginnings, first things, primary, essential, and foundational elements of all that is connected to life: intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
When thinking about leadership, the need is evident to understand the primary / first elements that must be in place for success.
A few elements that are building blocks for all leaders include integrity, honesty, strong work ethic, passion, confidence in God, discipline, and balance.
These are the “primal” of leadership.
Using these as a foundation, leaders can build strength and character providing hope for everyone who follows.
