True and genuine friendship is rare and should be treasured. There is never a bad time for a friend. They always seem to know the right time to show up and speak.
Leaders often experience times when there is the need for a good friend, someone who is able to fill the gap, sharing the mountain tops and valleys.
A good friend is someone who knows when to listen without being critical. They are respectful even though they may disagree.
Leaders also know the value of providing genuine friendship to those who follow.
