Leaders love the change in seasons.

As we head into the: summer season, presidential campaign season, summer vacation season, summer camp season, gardening season, out-of-school season, barbeque season, summer home project season, summer internship season . . . let us not forget that seasons mean different things to different people.

Effective leaders use seasons as a way to understand the communities they lead. Seasons allow the many dimensions of people to emerge, shine and grow.

Ask anyone this simple question: “What is your favorite season and what does it mean to you?”

You will learn more about that person in three minutes than you can even begin to imagine.
