TO BE A TRUE LEADER IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES OF THOSE AROUND SO YOU CAN HELP THEM BE THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES.
For a really long time I have asked myself that question without having any idea of what could be the right answer.
Today I think I finally got my answer.
Leadership is not about being busy or pressing everyone to do whatever you want to. Leadership is about compromising with your people and with yourself, it means giving your best and not letting other people down. Sometimes it requires you to give your best to the one who needs it and to put yourself in the shoes of other people, to listen to them with all your senses and to see their virtues and celebrate them.
A leader is a human being who makes a difference in someone’s life. Even if you don’t notice it at the moment, you should know we all have a leader inside of us, we all can make a change in this world. We only need to be strong enough to see it.
Do the right thing, even if no one is watching, this is what a leader does. Leadership is taking people by the hand and teaching them new things. I’m on my way to become a great one!
