But is that really right? Is that all there is to leadership?
We are all leaders whether we like it or not. You may not think you are a leader butif you’re honest with yourself there is somebody who looks to you for answers. There is someone who looks to you for guidance. They are modeling your actions. It is up to you, if you are going to rise up to that role or turn away from it.
Let me ask you, is your role for this person just to accomplish a goal?
Leadership: the capacity to influence others by unleashing their power and potential to impact the greater good.
You see, it’s not simply about accomplishing a feat it’s about the development of the other(s)….
You are not just a dad, you are not just a mom, you are not just a student.
You are so much more! You are a leader, an influencer, a mentor, a presence in thelives of those around you. Even though we often forget and lose sight of it.
The question is…
Are you going to rise up and fill that role or let it slip away?
“If we did all the things we are capable of, we should literally astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison
