[FLR] “7 Ways Being a Mother Made Me a Better Leader” | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,


This Sunday is Mother’s Day.


Interesting statistic, we spend on average 50% more for on gifts for mothers than we do on Father’s day – that is a telling number.


Mothers are the first leaders that we all learn to follow. They literally lead us out of the safety of their womb into this world. Our mothers teach, guide & encourage us towards our potential. That’s the role of all great leaders.
