Helping or Enabling
There is a difference between helping and enabling. There is also a difference in how we perceive helping and the reality of our actions.
Remember the proverb: Give someone a fish and feed them for a day or teach them how to fish and feed them for life. Which one is really helping?
Our leadership needs to be based on the same idea. When we strive to help someone, it should be considered beyond the temporary need of the moment.
Let us lead with the conviction of helping others long term, perhaps eternally. Here is where the legacy of our leadership will be determined.
