The word “leadership” is often misunderstood in the workplace. Most people think it requires a title of some sort. You’re a leader if you supervise others or if you have a few fancy letters after your name.
I don’t think leaders are defined by position or organizational hierarchy. To me, leaders are defined by their actions. Consequently, I believe that anyone in any role has the ability to be a leader. Likewise, some people who are in traditional “leadership” roles definitely are not leaders by my estimation.
Being a leader in the workplace doesn’t require any special training or knowledge, but it does require character. It takes a little added effort and a thoughtful approach. But it’s not difficult. We’re talking about small, everyday actions here—nothing extravagant.
I also believe that leadership is a skill worth honing—regardless of your professional aspirations. Whether or not you want some official title in the future, practicing leadership is rewarding in and of itself.
If you agree with what I’m suggesting, I’m glad you’re here. You’re my kind of people. If you don’t agree with this philosophy, that’s okay too. I hope you’ll stick around and stay open minded. You might rethink your beliefs before it’s all said and done.
This month, I’m hosting a webinar on this very topic and I’m inviting you to attend. I promise you’ll hear some new ideas about leadership.
