I believe that we are all leaders. Whether we are parents, business owners, friends, coaches, servers, mechanics or even students–we have the opportunity to lead. I personally believe that it is our job to step up, when we are called, to lead.
So what does leadership mean?
Leadership means being an example of what to do when you don’t feel like it–even when no one is watching.
Leadership is sailing the ship when the captain is gone–and getting all the sailors on board to help you so you are not sailing the boat yourself. Empowering teams.
Leadership is choosing what to do, or not to do, when your friends are not making good choices. Make good choices.
Leadership is NOT taking on that client that you know is not a good fit for you even though you need the money.
Leadership is staying true to who you are and not compromising yourself when times are tough. Everything is easy when times are good. But when times are difficult, who do you want to be…really?
Leadership is knowing who you are…and empowering others to be who THEY are, instead of some ideal that someone else created as the truth.
Are you a leader?
YES, you are. But did you know it?
What do you need to start doing NOW to be a better leader?
