Quiet Leadership: Breath

Quiet Leadership explores leadership through the smallest of actions: in that sense, it is neither glamorous, nor programmatic.

Rather it is about the connections between the self and the system, between the smallest and largest, between the leaf and the forest, at scale.

Leaves breathe: not the same way that we do, but nonetheless they breathe in and out, through the rhythms of day and night, and the processes of photosynthesis.

If the forest is green, it is only so because of every single leaf.

If the air is clear, it is only so from every simple breath.

Quiet Leadership explores the smallest of actions, within the largest of systems, but the system at scale cannot thrive without this breath.
