Passion comes from a Latin word meaning “to suffer.”
Most remember the movie The Passion Of The Christ. The title was derived from the idea of the Latin word.
The Leadership Legacy was written by Kouzes and Posner. The authors quickly point out the need for leaders to understand they must serve and suffer.
Leaders must put the needs of others above themselves. This Biblical truth and the quality of great leadership are seen when leaders abandon a self-seeking worldly approach.
Be passionate, but understand what passion really means.
