The decisions we make every day are based on our understanding of how the world works, or how we believe it should work. But, would you be able to articulate your personal mission if asked? Many of us cannot. How you lead your work team and how you are seen as a leader in the larger organization is a reflection of what you value and how you live your life. A strong leader, one who others choose to follow, understands how their values and personal mission translate into professional behaviors and lead to action within their organization.
