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.

This is an email that was sent to the faculty at Moody. You can read the story at the end with several contexts in mind. For example, you can read it with the events in north Africa and the Middle East as your lense. Feel free to share the story with others. It came to me by way of my...

Enjoying It

Posted by Whitney Forstner 1 Comments

This time of year I start to get really excited for warm weather, longer days and an overall sense of rebirth. However, I also find this time of year completely overwhelming.

Another piece to the equation

Posted by Kelly Lewis 2 Comments

While at a retreat this past weekend, I discovered another piece to my leadership equation (Vulnerability Patience Trust = Wholehearted leading..living..learning) that is necessary for me to be completely free to be and bring all of me to my work and life. My new piece is Forgiveness (of...
