Leadership lessons from Martin Luther King, Jr.

MLK“The ultimate test of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and moments of convenience, but where he stands in moments of challenge and moments of controversy.”                

        –Martin Luther King, Jr.

As we celebrate Martin Luther King Day today, it seems appropriate to share a quote from his treasure trove of wisdom.

What significance does this quote have for you? When you think about your own leadership, where have you been tested by moments of challenge or controversy? How did you respond to the challenge? What did you do in the moment of controversy? What have you learned as a result?

I encourage you to share your stories here to enrich our learning community of leaders.
