Kevin engages leadership from a “we” perspective. Your situation and position should never be allowed to cloud your vision of what leadership means. Leadership is all about people and the ways in which we relate: react vs. respond, good attitude vs. bad attitude, communication vs. lack of communication, positive or negative.
Every leader is expected to be an example in character and compassion; when you are working alone will you do your best? And when people are demanding and time is long spent, how will you treat them?
Leading with a heart to help others and make them better is a priceless character trait to possess, it will propel you as a leader and all who follow you to increased heights of performance and success. When people around the leader knows he or she has their best interest in heart and mind, much is accomplished and much more will be realized presently, day today and in the future.
Leadership is one of the most powerful and common designations in life. Doing what needs to be done, and often without the resources or time is not an easy task – but that’s what leaders do. They do it wholeheartedly, consistently, and lots of times quietly. How will you lead? Why are you leading? What are the outcomes and usefulness of your leadership? True leaders can get more done with less, and often they accomplish much more than is required.
