Voices of Leadership

When we choose to lead from the inside out, leadership is not just something we do, it is the way we live. It is a commitment we practice every day. A responsibility to be our best selves and to engage and empower others to do the same. A pledge to contribute, in whatever way we are called, to build a better world.

Check out the voices of leaders who inspire us to move forward in the mutual endeavor of revitalizing the art of human leadership for a better Richmond...a better world.

Sidewalks lined by busy shops and restaurants leading to intersections sprinkled with people. No doubt the greatest...

Balance in a World of Extremes

Posted by Art Raymond Share Your Voice

We really do live in a world of extremes. If we look at what is reported on the news, we see that if you disagree with the left, then you are a right wing Conservative fanatic. If you disagree with the right, then you are un-American. Similarly, if you go to church, some think that you must be...

I am a healthy, whole, beautiful being ....but sometimes I forget that.

when I get in a rut and don't workout for awhile;

when I put my kids' needs before my own;

when work gets the best of me;

when I forget to stop; just stop, and breathe;

Sure I Can....

My last 5 months have been filled of countless "sure I can" statements ... sure I can be the chair of your organization, sure I can teach your class for you, sure I can go to Target on the way to work, and the list goes on and on.
