Leadership is a part of our personality and we decide if we want to let others see it or not. You can be reserved and be a great leader; and the opposite is true too. And in order to develop our skill sets, we take steps to reveal ourselves/our personalities. On a daily basis, I strive to be accessible and present. When you are neither, it’s difficult to be construed as a resource, let alone a leader.
With a multitude of constant distractions, it’s often a challenge to focus our energy. However, that focus is more often rooted in a commitment. And whether they are acknowledged or assumed, we offer commitments day in and day out. I often see people who place themselves in servant roles and disclaim themselves from leadership responsibilities. On the contrary, any time we make a commitment we enter into a leadership role.
Winston Churchill was quoted as saying, “Each night before I go to bed, I try myself by Court Martial to see if I have done something really effective during the day – I don’t mean merely pawing the ground, anyone can go through the motions, but something really effective.” On a daily basis we are each given opportunities. Some are large and some are small, but each one has an inherent capacity to be great. And it’s within us all to determine if we will carry those opportunities through the motions, or transform them into something really effective.
We all contribute to the greater good when we aspire to being committed, accessible and present; A leader by any other name.
