Dharma Glimpse by Katie Cove
What is Leadership?
As I sit at my desk before the working day begins and look at the Buddha which guides me through each day, I wonder what challenges I will face. As a new journey and pathway in my life is being built I find myself managing a very busy and large nursery in Cheltenham. I question what leadership means?
No, Leadership means
Keeping others safe
A leader guides us in the right direction, keeps us safe and makes everyone feel valued and part of a team.
This is how the Buddha guides me to be a strong leader to have strength and belief in myself and those around me.
At the end of my working day a little 4-year-old always pops into the office full of awe and wonder at the Buddha on my desk and each evening we have a little chat about the Buddha and what it means to me. The little boy opens his hand to which I place the Buddha for him to touch and hold, his eyes open wide he looks at me and smiles.
As Buddhists we are all leaders.
