“I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have een so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else.” – Toni Morrison
Toni Morrison died yesterday aged 88.
“We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives,”Toni Morrison
Rest in peace, Queen, you have left such a measure of your life in your work.
As this is also a daily blog to inspired and empower leaders to be their highest and best selves, let me also anchor to:
“If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else”Toni Morrison
The epitome of servant leadership. Beautiful.
