I was asked this week about what kind of courses I had taken to learn about leadership and coaching. While I do love learning, reading and following great people. There was no specific class I took that made me want to help others. There was no class that taught me what to say to make others believe they can be better than they thought.

It was simply a decision to give. Give of my time, my energy and my experience. It was a decision to see good, talent and possibility in people even when they may not see it themselves. It was decision to share words of encouragement and hope instead of remaining silent.  It was a decision to be engaged, involved and part of a solution.   It was simply a decision to try!
