I love pulling wisdom and insight from everyday life. I heard these quotes on the show Madam Secretary and took note of them:

Where our interests are clear, our values are at stake and we can make a difference, we must act and we must lead.

Isn’t that a fantastic concept about making disciples, living as a Christian, and leadership?

There’s plenty of room for mediocre men; there’s no room for mediocre women.

What I took from this is that women in leadership roles are held to a higher standard than men and their performance is under greater scrutiny. That’s consistent with my experience. I’d love to see the day when there’s no room for mediocrity in leaders, regardless of their gender.
