Leadership equation from Al Pacino

I have enjoyed working through the D.R.I.V.E acronym this month- whether you are a leader or human being who wants to optimize your God given potentiality, we need to be devoted to something or someone, have a readiness for learning, invest in people, and have a clarifying vision for our lives.  So much has already said about the E, which is Exercise that includes healthy eating and fitness to sustain momentum.

I have also been enjoying reviewing some classic movies. This week I came across an old movie, starring Al Pacino, called The Scent of a Woman.  The title can be misleading but there is a closing scene where Al Pacino ‘sticks’ up for a student and lays out his ‘formula’ for leadership.  He basically says,
Integrity + Courage -> makes a good leader

The language in this scene is graphic and harsh, but I am totally inspired to come alongside young adults who are seeking to D.R.I.V.E their way through this harsh but exciting life.

  1. That’s a good “formula”!

    Something about the rigours of modern western life seems to beat it out of us over time. The challenge for me is to relearn it afresh every morning.

    Nice one, Luch.
