Leadership Lesson: Leadership is Perspective. Perspective is Leadership. 150 150 Bryce Henson

Leadership Lesson: Leadership is Perspective. Perspective is Leadership.

As the headline states, the more perspective you gain, the better leader you can become.

There are many ways to gain perspective.

Today’s lesson is about travel.

I learned this lesson in May 2004 when I enrolled myself through a study abroad program entering my senior year of college.

I put myself on a plane to Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore, and never have been the same.

This week I am at it again in the United Kingdom.

Tatiana and I ventured out to London, England to attend my good friend Matt’s wedding on Saturday.

Matt’s an English bloke I met in 2007 in Orange County through a mutual friend on his world travels. 

We hit it off and have traveled the world together over the last 15+ years. 

We have journeyed from LA to New York, Brazil, Portugal, Croatia, Greece, and the list goes on.

It was extra special seeing him and his new bride Charlotte get married in England on his home turf.

It was a fantastic event although uncomfortable.

Travel always is.

The 11-hour flight, the 8-hour time difference, the hard jetlag, the small hotel living quarters, the confusion at the train station, the tough eating options, and the list goes on.

The truth is travel is hard, it’s uncomfortable and not easy.

In the moment, many times it’s not enjoyable.

But that’s where the value lies.

It pushes you, it stretches you.

It gives you new looks at people, human nature, and life.

The experience enriches your life with time.

It provides you with perspective.

And remember:

Perspective is leadership.

Leadership is perspective.
