Little Things Make a Big Difference

    Leadership is an act that takes place in three areas of our lives: in our work environment, our personal environment, and in our community.

     Recently, while facilitating a leadership training, I shared the DVD titled, 212°, because I found its message both inspiring and motivating. After the presentation and then again at our lunch break, many of the participants continued to discuss, interpret and then envision how the information would be helpful. I continue to marvel at how little things, do indeed, make a big difference. 212° tells us there is very little that separates the good from the great. The difference is, many times, only a single degree!  This simplistic truth has vast application for all of us.
