Yes, leaders are sometimes the ones leading the charge, followed by a sea of armed soldiers merging with the enemy on the battlefield. However, despite our title, attire or self-impression, we are also leaders within our organization.
What do you think it means to be a leader? What does it take to be a leader?
A leader is an individual who cares about adopting the highest standards in their own conduct, ethics and integrity in observance of the organization’s mission, vision and values.
Your actions reveal your intentions. No matter where you are, even if it’s at the bottom of the totem pole, your actions affect your performance and ripple through the organization.
So leaders can look any sort of way, be quiet and not necessarily have the job with the greatest responsibility–but they all follow through in their actions with great purpose and passion!
