"First you have to fill your cup and when you fill your cup, it begins to drip over to your family, then it begins to drip over to your community, and ultimately it begins to drip all over the world. It starts with you. It starts with being patient". Mike and Xavier told us all about that Leadership DRIP in the kickoff to our webinar series yesterday. They shared with us the importance of Discipline, Respect, Integrity, and Patience. They challenged us to #practicepatience Be patient with ourselves and with others during this time. And to post #practicepatience selfies. Check out the recording here if you missed it and be sure to share those selfies!
