Happy Thursday! I hope you're having a great week! I'm super excited about my next leadership conference. Sometimes leadership is forced upon us and sometimes it is freely accepted. Most people have been in a position to lead either at work, in their community, or in their family, etc. Therefore, understanding leadership is very important in order to lead successfully. I have always accepted the responsibility to lead because I believe that's just part of God's plan and purpose for my life. I know that being a great leader requires that I am accountable, know when to seek wise counsel, and I must remain teachable. I'm always looking for areas to grow my leadership. Therefore, when a leadership conference, podcast or book on leadership is available then I'm all in!! I do believe all of those things are great when it comes to growing your leadership; however, I believe certain leadership attributes can never be taught. They must be caught!! I feel everything about leadership cannot come from a speaker or book. It's natural and it must come from the heart.
For example, anytime I'm in the presence of people I always say happy monday, tues, wed, etc. This is apart of my gift that God has given me. It is genuine and I use it to encourage others. I understand that it doesn't take a lot to encourage just a little effort. I encourage so much to the point I do not even think about it. It comes so natural and it flows from my heart. Basically leadership is about intuition which I don't feel can be taught. I feel it is caught when you are walking in your plan and purpose for your life.
I can write pages and pages on leadership. However, if I'm to sum it up I would say that leadership comes with responsibility. The responsibility to first and foremost lead yourself in thoughts and actions. ...then you are capable of leading those that follow your leadership and cause a positive chain reaction.
As always, thank you so much for reading and I pray you have a wonderful rest of the week!
