For me, leadership comes in all shapes 🟡🔶🔲💠◽
First, what does it mean?
These are some of the things that come to mind:
Helping a team succeed – at work, sport, at home
Communicate in a way that inspires others to come together and take action toward a shared goal
Create a truly inclusive and safe environment – diversity of everything… skills, backgrounds, views, styles etc.
Let our teams know how we operate – something I learned the hard way. The better they know how we work, the more supported they’ll feel
Celebrate their victories as if they’re our own
Make decisions even when uncertainty is high
What makes a good leader?
Leaders don’t have to fit into a mold…
✔ Some are extroverts
✔ Some are introverts
✔ Some sit somewhere in the middle
✔ Some are quiet
✔ Some are more energetic
✔ Some move fast
✔ Some move slow
But the best ones all share one thing in common…
They lead people to become leaders themselves
In my experience, leading people to become leaders and help them elevate their leadership skills feels rewarding at a level that is hard to match
