Core Competency: Leadership

Take the Lead

Leadership isn’t only reserved for those with the title.  Leadership is a mindset and we all have opportunities to take the lead in our day-to-day work.  Whether working with a team on a project, volunteering on a committee or participating in a group decision, we can all make a lasting impact and a great impression by thinking and acting like a leader.  Here is one good approach… 

“Everyone has the choice to be a leader, to make an impact and leave their mark. Too many people back off from taking the lead in the mistaken belief that leadership and greatness are reserved for a select few. …The only way people give away their power is by thinking they don’t have any. If you take it upon yourself to lead with the idea of serving others, you will not only stand out but will also leave a strong and lasting impression.

If you’re the kind of person whose foundation is positivity, service, and guiding and supporting others while trying to solve problems and come up new solutions, you will soon find yourself standing out–and setting yourself up to become the kind of leader others respect and want to follow.”

To Your Success!
