Here's what I think about leadership:
Leadership isn't mythical or magical and it has nothing to do with charisma. It's not loud. In fact, leadership can be so quiet or simple that if you didn't know what you were looking for, you'd miss it. Leadership is not about following a checklist nor is it copying what someone else does.
Just because it worked for someone else, does not mean it will work for you. Why? Because of all the things a leader brings to their leadership each day, the most important is bringing herself or himself.
And guess what? I had a great Saturday morning because I had the opportunity with leaders of the Minnesota Paralegal Association about just this.
Talk about an amazing group of leaders. Go MPA!
Michael Hyatt recently posted his 12 ways to know you are a leader. His words resonated with me when he wrote, "Leadership is not about experience, education or talent. It's about choosing to lead."
What do you think about this? What tips, pointer, experiences would you share with an audience to bring out the leader in them?
