Do you think of yourself as a leader? When you think of a leader, who comes to mind? We are not all destined to be the CEO of a large corporation or an officer in our local associations. But we all have a “sphere of influence” and believe it or not, you are a leader! I was recently given the opportunity to attend the Global Leadership Summit which is organized annually by the Global Leadership Network. The Global Leadership Network is a community of “curious, growth-minded, change-driven people committed to developing their leadership skills to maximize their influence for the purpose of igniting positive transformation wherever they live and work.” (www.globalleadership.org) My biggest takeaway from that Summit was the concept that we are all leaders!
Perhaps you don’t see yourself as a leader – but you might like to learn to be one. After all, leaders are not born, they are made! Like any other skill, leadership can be developed. If you have ever pondered stepping up to a position in leadership, here are some things you might want to consider.
- What is one strength I have? How can I use it in a leadership position?
- What is one weakness I have? How can I overcome it so that I can assume a position in leadership?
- What is one leadership gap I have? How can I learn the skills that might be needed?
- What is on my leadership bucket list? Setting goals can help you get there.
Whether it is in the workplace, your local association, or your community, your leadership might just make the difference. I hope you will all remember, that You Are A Leader!
