When you think of a leader, who do you imagine? Is it a CEO? Political leader? Top-performing athlete? If it’s anyone other than yourself, you’re doing yourself a major disservice.
The thing about leading is, at some point or another, we’re all given the opportunity to do it. And yet, some people live through their lives thinking of themselves as having little or no leadership skills, say or power with respect to the direction of their own life.
WHAT ARE LEADERSHIP SKILLS?
Leadership skills are your ability to guide. This could mean guiding your children toward becoming responsible adults, guiding a group of volunteers in learning how to raise money or guiding a multi-million-dollar company as the CEO. It can also mean guiding yourself. Effective leadership skills that appear in our personal lives include being the master of our own emotions and asking ourselves the right questions.
Whether you’re the head of a major corporation, the pastor of a local church, a parent or you’re flying solo and trying to figure out your next move, you have ample opportunities to improve leadership skills and become a great leader each and every day.
