Although I have been fortunate to discover many leadership truths over the last 30 years, one truth continues to have the most far reaching benefit in my life. To be sure, there are numerous leadership lessons that have served me well, but all of them combined don’t equal the cumulative power of believing that there is no
on leadership. The truth is that every one of us can demonstrate leadership in every role we play, not just at work but everywhere, every day.
While most leaders would be quick to acknowledge the opportunity this truth presents, most would also agree that it’s a challenge to seize the opportunity at every juncture. Despite the fact that real leadership is so desperately needed in all corners of our society today, the multitude of distractions we face often prevent us from not only seeing the opportunity but seizing it too.
