I’m repeatedly struck by how much hope is an essential part of leadership.

Andy Andrews says it this way in his book The Final Summit

“Hope is the first task of a leader.”

“Hope is the captain of courage and the author of success.  For the person whose hope remains unshaken has within them the power to do miracles.  Hope sees what’s invisible, feels what is intangible, and achieves what most consider impossible.”

We often talk about the importance of vision casting as leaders, but perhaps we need to reframe it as “hope casting”.

Where could your team use some hope today?
