Do you have what it takes to be a leader?
What is your job title? Does it include the word leader? Maybe…maybe not. We don’t usually call leaders by name. But in some way or another, you probably are. No matter your position, whether you are an intern, project manager, supervisor, executive, or administrative assistant, you can be a leader.
Personal leadership is the ability to provide guidance and assistance to others. And doesn’t everyone within an organization do that at some level? You activate the power of leadership when you help someone understand how to do a job better, when you take responsibility for your department or team, when you mentor someone, or even help them learn a new skill.
Good leaders tend to have doubts. But they commit to the path they believe is right, even when it’s not easy. You’re a leader when you put your mind to something and stick with it. When you communicate your vision to others. When you inspire others. And when you motivate others.
Leaders can be effective in many different ways. But there’s a theme we’ve noticed that tends to exist within all true leaders. So we ask you… Do you have what it takes to lead?
