LEADERSHIP
They say that leaders are born, not made. While it is true that some people are born leaders, some leaders are born in the midst of adversity. Often, simple people who have never had a leadership role will stand up and take the lead when a situation they care about requires it. A simple example is parenting. When a child arrives, many parents discover leadership abilities they never knew existed in order to guide and protect their offspring. Learn the techniques of true Leadership and Influence, then build the confidence it takes to lead. The more experience acting as a genuine leader, the easier it will be. It is never easy to take the lead, as it requires making decisions and facing challenges, but it can become natural and rewarding.
