Most managers support the process and are good at getting results. You don’t want to be like most managers. You want to inspire others on a journey of Why. Not What If. Especially not How.
To inspire others to join you on the journey requires leadership. Author Simon Sinek spells it out:
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
Leadership is not a title but a practice. It’s about the little things done consistently:
- Making others feel safe.
- Giving others responsibilities.
- Giving others opportunities.
- Making others feel valued.
- Understanding others.
- Caring for others.
Those whom foster relationships who take care of others will find themselves in the position where others can be trusted to have your back.
It’s your choice to be a leader. You don’t need permission. You don’t need a title. You must decide to care for others: inspiring them to dream more, learn more, do more and become more.
