This post is beginning a multi-part series of articles designed to address and develop leadership. The reason I have used the word address is because most individuals in positions of power don’t lead, they push, belittle, and even demine. It’s “do what I say” not “do what I do.” Some people are given power, but everyone has to earn influence.
So, the time has come to lead with character, to lead with principle, to lead with conviction. Here are 3 easy ways to begin the leadership transformation.
- Lead by example.
- Live by the golden rule.
- Don’t ever ask anyone to do something you aren’t willing to do yourself.
The coming articles will address various aspects of leadership and will follow up on how to develop those corresponding leadership qualities. Since each one of us leads in one way or the other, let’s begin to lead in such a way as to expand our circle of influence. It’s time for action. It’s time to lead.
