This week’s Q&A is an expansion of some insights I shared on my Facebook page about leadership and specifically, the death of Hugo Chavez who was a polarizing figure, to say the least. We look at people like Mr. Chavez, the pope, presidents, Queen Elizabeth and wonder what is wrong with them.
The Indigo generation represents the new leaders of the world and while their courage, vision, determination and commitment equip them for the task, other aspects make this very challenging.

A true leader inspires. A true leader takes responsibility gladly.
He is the servant who serves others through his leadership. It could be

overall responsibility lies most on his shoulders. May his shoulders be
broad and willing. May his happiness lie in his serving gladly and
contributing to the whole.
