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 …
