You can lead anywhere you are now!

28 Jun

One of the foremost world leadership experts,John C. Maxwell said ‘Leadership is influence,no more,no less!’
I believe one of the injustice of this millenium is giving wrong meaning to the word leadership. Leadership is not just about position. Positional leadership is just a form of leadership,one of the avenues by which leadership can be implemented.
Leadership is influence and because it is influence,everybody is a leader. This is because everyone has one form of influence or the other; at home,in school,at the office,in the church etc. You that you are reading this blog has one form of influence or the other,no matter how small.
The challenge before us all is the ability to harness our energy to impact people anywhere we are found. You can make a difference.You can pioneer a change that will make this life a better place to be. There is a leadership seed in everyone of us. The onus now lies on us to develop that seed so as to blossom and be a blessing to our world. I will like to give these few tips about leadership:
* Leadership is not a gift; it is a choice!
* Leadership cannot be impacted; it is to be consciously cultivated and developed!
* You cannot lead with your head,you lead with your heart!
* Readers are leaders; the more you read, the better you will be able to develop your leadership skills.
* If you’re leading and no one is following,you are only taking a stroll!
* People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care!
Remember,don’t wait until you occupy a position before you discover and develop your leadership skills.You are a leader. There is a leadership seed in you!
Have a pleasant weekend!
