Leadership Where To Begin

Leadership, where to begin it’s easier than you think …

Have you ever thought about being a Leader? We certainly need them, we need you! But let’s discuss exactly what a Leader is and does, then how you can begin to be one.

A “Leader” is a person who’s able to inspire change in others, to direct with compassion, to point towards a path that helps someone, not hinders. A Leader is able to teach and “let go” of their “students” and celebrate their successes – even if they out perform the leader. A Leader guides their “tribe” never abandoning them and always listens to suggestions and feedback.

A Leader encourages, promotes, and supports their “followers” and by doing so, ignites confidence, personal growth, and a desire to excel in their lives.

A Leader doesn’t have to be famous. They’re everywhere. Your neighbor, a friend, someone at work. They lead by example. It’s the person that respects what they do and they just have a knack for uplifting you – no matter what your job is. A Leader sees value in you and often sees more of it than you do.

A Leader taps into your strengths, not your weaknesses. A Leader forges forward and is not afraid to take on added responsibilities – because they’re viewed as learning experiences.

There’s much to say about what a Leader is and what they do. But I believe they are needed now more than ever today.

Strength is valued and I see so many people lost, not knowing what to do with their lives. Floundering and unhappy. Even Internet Marketers are looking for direction … the RIGHT direction – and this is a whole other topic …

Here’s how you can become a Leader INSTANTLY

Becoming a leader is easy and perhaps you may be timid about it, and that’s alright. Because, you can grow into the role and learn a great deal as you feel more comfortable. Instant Leadership comes when you decide to take on something, be a Leader of a group for instance. Here are some ideas …

You’re an instant Leader when you raise your hand to …

  • facilitate a group of people
  • be the |Go To” person for any kind of specific information
  • start a group
  • teach a specific topic
  • do something no one else will
  • eat new food and share your opinion
  • lead a parade
  • be the first to do something
  • lead by example

Now I know this list is evasive. But I BET you can think of things you could do to be an instant Leader and apply this list to it.

The benefits of Leadership are many …

  • increases self confidence
  • expands your experiences
  • expands your knowledge
  • increases your resourcefulness
  • increase your ability to communicate with others
  • prepares you for challenges
  • strengthens your ability to take on more
  • builds self-respect
  • builds respect from others
  • increases your visibility
  • enhances your reputation
  • builds your popularity
  • increases self appreciation for what you’re capable of

Becoming a Leader is a great role to step into. Start small, get comfortable with it, then take on more …

    I like that, start small then take on more. Becoming a leader can often be something that grows on you. As we get more familiar with something we can lead others, teach them how, show them the way. Some people are natural leaders, they can go into a new situation and automatically be the leader, but sometimes it grows on you for sure.

    Enjoy the journey!

  2. Hi Philip,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and your comment.. I appreciate it πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Lesly,
    It’s indeed a great joy to be here at your place today! πŸ™‚

    I am so glad to read my first piece to read hear is about leadership!
    Yes, The tips in nutshell given here will surely lead a person to be a good leader πŸ™‚

    The books i was referring was, Biblical Principles of Leadership by Dr, Alexander Kurian and another one by Hans Finzel under the title The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make.

  4. Hi Adele,
    Wonderful to see you visiting πŸ™‚ Thanks for the compliment. I agree with you. There are people who are not famous but have so much wisdom to experience and it is a shame that just because someone is famous, does not mean they have the wisdom to really guide, mentor, someone else .. and yes, feel free to use what I posted .. with a mention? Love you πŸ™‚

    Now, this is one of those “oldie but goodie” posts. You are spot on with the definition of what leadership is all about. Many of these are great reminders, particularly about the fact that a true leader doesn’t have to be famous. Like what my favorite book says, “the greatest among you would have to be the least.” It’s just so sad to see how many people go for the leadership because of the fame that they will be getting, yet not really that keen to take the responsibility of what the position they crave entails.

    PS. I hope you don’t mind if I use a few of the points that you listed here in one of my upcoming trainings. πŸ™‚

  6. Hi Monisha,
    Wonderful to see you visiting! I think that’s how everyone learns … by example. Some leaders boss you around – they’re not leaders but ones who like to control others. If someone inspires you with authentic intention, you will learn from them the most … thank you for the compliment πŸ™‚

  7. Hi Lesly,

    Fabulous post! All valid and actionable points on how to be a leader.
    You definitely epitomize a true leader and I’m so appreciative of your guidance and PAC.

    The point that resonated with me most is to “lead by example”. I think a lot of people learn from each other and a true leader is one that not only shows how to do things successfully, but also how to find resolve in mistakes. Making her / him someone that others can learn from.

    Thank You for sharing Lesly!

  8. Hi Andrea,
    Wonderful to see you here .. I AGREE>> I have grown so much as a person and I really let that as well as helping others be my guiding light … thank you for the compliment …

  9. Hey Lesley, thanks for this great post. Love your leadership. And I myself have come to the conclusion that the benefits of being a leader FAR outweigh the price you have to pay when you’re a leader. Besides the money, you become a better person!!

  10. Hi Lawrence!
    Great to see you visiting… glad you found this post helpful and inspiring …thank you!

  11. Well said Lesly. This article speaks to me loudly as it is a goal of mine to build a community of leaders. People who are able to lead with positive actions and reactions. Good leaders are also good listeners and relationship builders. The list of benefits is a great reminder to anyone who may need to clarify the “why” in any group or project they start.

  12. Hey Sherman,
    What a wonderful surprise.. we haven’t connected in quite a while .. I agree with you. Leadership takes many forms and can be executed in many ways. Blogging is certainly one of them. Just being who you are and leading by example is another .. nothing special – just being who you are can yield it’s own magic .. thank you for the visit Sherman, appreciate it …

  13. Hey Lesly,

    It’s been a while since I’ve been on your post. How’s everything?

    I came at the right time. The topic of leadership is very important, especially in our world of blogging and internet marketing. There’s a lot of people out there that are lost and need some direction. What better way than to be a great example.

    With that said, I believe leadership can be indirect as well as direct. Indirect in a sense of blogging by providing valuable information that can help those that are struggling with their blog or business. If you can provide the solutions and confidence with your blog, then they will look at you as an authority within your niche, aka Leader.

    Thanks for sharing Lesly and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  14. Hi Emi,
    Great to see you visiting.. πŸ™‚ You’re a leader… anytime anyone teaches someone else something, they become a leader … πŸ™‚

  15. Emi says:

    Hi Lesly,
    Great pointers, love your article everything is so true,
    leader is all that… and I think so many people don’t really believe
    in themselves and they just decide to be followers not because they are not
    the leader, simply because they choose not to take it.

    Thank you for sharing,
    Have a beautiful Sunday πŸ™‚

  16. Donna my love,
    I am still humble and modest about being called a “leader” lol (you can call me anything you want … ). So many think they’re not leaders, but when I read Robin Sharma’s book” The Leader Without A Title” it showed me leaders are everywhere and you don’t have to climb an intense ladder to get there.. it can start now. And thank you for those kind words about PAC.. really appreciate it .. it’s for everyone and if you and others get something out of it, well, that’s made my day and all the effort is worth it.. <3 Much love to you...

  17. Hi Lesly,

    Being a leader is caring for others in a nutshell I believe. I like that you pointed out that a leader inspires and helps change others…lifting them up and also celebrating their success.

    Leadership always requires the best intention for others. Now I don’t know how you do it all, but to me, you are a perfect example when it comes to leadership. Just look at PAC! Gosh, there is so much going on there and you always find other things to throw into that mix. It is not only about sharing but learning.

    I remember having this conversation with you a while back and calling you a leader lol!

    All the best to you,


  18. Hey Monna,
    Thank you … I know from personal experience that nurturing a person’s abilities only yields greatness in that person, far more than being told what to do… so my heartfelt passion is to help as many people as I can to believe in themselves, once they do … they’ll discover more, take on more, and become a natural Leader .. you, my friend are an example of this … πŸ™‚

  19. Hi Lesly,

    You amaze me at the content you share and how much you get done in a days’ time. You have written a great post and I agree completely 100%.

    I also like this phrase; “A Leader taps into your strengths, not your weaknesses. A Leader forges forward and is not afraid to take on added responsibilities – because they’re viewed as learning experiences.”

    Unfortunately I’ve had experiences with leaders who lead by intimidation or bullying and all I can say is if anyone is trying to “lead” you in that direction, run the other way as fast as you can.

    Thanks for everything you do, Lesly
