Handsome is as Handsome Does! Leading the SpringHill Way – Part 4

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday it so often seems our world value celebrities, fame, and image over integrity and character. As a consequence, leaders are often tempted by the promise of influence that fame offers so they can quickly slide into focusing too much energy on managing their image instead of building their character.

However the problem with fame and image, from a leadership standpoint, is that they’re superficial, temporary, and do not build meaningful relationships. And without meaningful relationships, transformational leadership becomes impossible. Now here’s why (so follow my chain of logic for a moment)–

Transformational leadership requires a context of healthy relationships

Trust is the key ingredient to healthy relationships

Trust comes not from image or fame but from integrity

And integrity is simply doing what we say we’re going to do when we say we’ll do it.

In other words, handsome is as handsome does.

This is why leaders at SpringHill are more concerned about doing what it takes to positively impact  the lives of others and the world as well as following through on the promises they’ve made rather than becoming a celebrity, being famous or enhancing their image. For the SpringHill leader the only handsome they care much about is the good looks that come from integrity.
