"I used to think leadership was a trait some people were born with. Because they had the most charisma, they could naturally influence others. I’ve always been an ideas guy, so not only was I not born with that special leadership trait, but I also sometimes value my own ideas more than I value people. Alignment Leadership taught me to love and serve others by first responding to their needs in that moment, not mine. Alignment Leadership also showed me that my strength in seeking personal transformation through Jesus Christ can help me serve others on their own unique journeys."
