“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams
I think that this is one of the simplest and most accurate descriptions of what I believe that Leadership really is. Why do i say that?
- the outcome is not about the leader, it relates the followers
- it’s based on the leaders actions, not commands or directions, and
- it’s about inspiring others,
This is what leadership is all about, it’s about selfless rather than selfish action which benefits the leader, it’s about setting the example and helping people become all that they can be and achieve their full potential.
If you can do this, and do it repeatedly, then you can become a great leader, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King jr are all great examples of leaders who achieved this.
It all starts with your action!
So what are you waiting for, start to set the example today.
