Migrant Crisis: Leaders – Take the lead

The migrant crisis going on across Europe right now is hellish. 

Going online and being confronted with images of a lifeless toddler lying on the beach should move something deep in the heart of every human. 

Leaders – take the lead. 

The world is finally awakening (I include myself in this) to the tragedy and horrific injustice going on right now on our door step. For the most part many do not know how to respond. The task seems too big. The cause too great. 

Leaders with a big heart, a big vision and big influence have the potential to make a significant impact in this crisis. 

Leaders it’s your time to step into action. Use your skill and influence for what really matters. 

Think, dream, plan, strategise, act, exhort, inspire, challenge whatever it is you need to do to leverage your influence with those you lead to make a difference in a time of desperate need.
