If you want to be a real leader, get real about leadership.
Leadership isn't attached to any single job title. It doesn't come with a diploma, a degree, or a program. Leadership is a way of thinking and acting, a way of being and doing.
If you want to get real about leadership, you can boil it down to four things:
- How leaders are - confident and modest, authentic, and good listeners
- What leaders do - attract and grow talent, lead by example, and challenge others to do their best
- How leaders act - give others guidance, not answers
- What leaders leave behind them - passion, a great team, and most importantly, more leaders
