Great Advice for Fathers and Leaders Alike

Last week was Fathers Day

I’ve reflected a lot on what my own father taught me. Both in words & actions.

One of the lessons my father taught me was that a father’s role is to: Preside, Provide & Protect.

If a Father provides then he leads by example. He takes on the responsibility of leading both by example & instruction. He lives & prioritizes the values that he wants the family to embody.

As a provider he is charged with working hard, continually growing and adding value in a way that takes care of the needs of his family. To be an effective provider he needs to be a doer.

And ultimately a Father must protect his family. Not only physically but emotionally & spiritually. Obviously if the situation arises he would fight off an intruder but the day to day responsibility is to make sure his family feels safe.

I think these three P’s can be applied to leaders in any organization. Their responsibility is to Preside, Provide & Protect

Preside: Lead by example

Provide: Produce & Create a Vision for everyone involved

Protect: Make people feel safe, heard and important

Great advice for Fathers and leaders alike
