When we think about leadership, we often think about presidents, prime ministers, leaders of companies, and captains of sports teams. The position you hold doesn’t make you a leader. It is what you do with your position that determines your leadership potential. Watch and listen to individuals who claim to be leaders. Do their behaviour and their dialogue reflect leadership? To be a leader, you do not need to be more talented, better looking, innovative or well off. Leadership is simple. What are you doing to add value to others, and how are you developing your inner core? Are you the best version of yourself in every situation? Do you try your best in everything you do?
Looking for ways of helping others is the key to developing leadership. Can you help someone? Of course, you can. Complicated, unreachable definitions complicate the definition of leadership. Let’s keep it simple and achievable. You don’t have to be the loudest person in the room to be a leader. Understanding that the little things you do in life can make big differences can help you steer through the exaggerated ideas of leadership.
- Add value to others.
- Do your best.
- Work on what you could improve at.
- Could you be the example?
