Here’s a Frequently Asked Question that Lee Ellis receives on the topic of leadership – “What is the importance of striving to not only lead, but to lead the right way?”

Question:Lee Ellis Leadership Development

“What is the importance of striving to not only lead, but to lead the right way?”

Lee’s Answer:

“I think it goes back to finding your purpose. I am not against making money and I am out here trying to do that, but it’s finding out what you are on this earth to do besides just fattening your wallet. I see my opportunities to influence other people and people are attracted to and influenced by others who are authentic. Are you concerned about your fellow man and others around you? If so, you are going to have influence. When I played sports, the guys who were always elected captain weren’t always the flashiest, but the ones who were leading by example. We are always looking for someone to look up to.”

The Power of One Person’s Commitment – A POW Bracelet Testimony

Lee continues to be humbly grateful for many people who prayed for and supported him during his over five-year POW experience. A special lady, Judy Groszek, was one of these individuals that wore a bracelet with Lee’s name and contacted Lee 40 years later to the realization that he had returned home.

Individuals like Judy are a great example to all of us of the power of generosity, commitment, and love for those around her. Never underestimate the impact of one person on another person’s life! Please share this story with others.
