Lessons of a Grandfather: 6 Degrees Leadership

Today, at approximately 2 PM, my family and I will say our last goodbyes to my grandfather.  I am comfortable with this home-going celebration given that he had 97 years on this side of the earth.  I only hope that I can live that long. 

During our drive to Mississippi, I had a chance to reflect on what lessons I learned from him that have made me a better leader.  The revelation came to me in a flash….6 Degrees Leadership.

This is a term I coined to explain the true impact of a leader.  When you bring forth one leader, they can bring up another, that person can bring another, and so on.  It starts a cycle that becomes infinite.  Just as we are only 6 degrees from knowing everyone in the world, I believe we are the same way when it comes to developing leaders.

My Grandfather was a very tough father on his children.  I am thankful that I was a Grandson and not a Son as I think that I would not have survived.   But, his children became great in their own right.  All of them had children and influenced them to become successful.  My dad consistently motivated me to not only study in school, but be the best.  He followed me to all of my sporting events, and made sure that he showed his support.  Because of his (and well as my aunts and uncles), I have hopefully touched someone elses’ life so that they can grow and encourage others.

The ultimate lesson…grow others.  Touch someone’s life today so that they can be a blessing to someone else.   By you planting a seed in them, the tree of knowledge and wisdom will grow in them, therefore allowing them to plant seeds in others.

God Bless,

Kontinue to Konker.
