I learned a long time ago that I can’t know it all — nor would I be so arrogant as to think I know it all even within my niche topics of Professional Presence and Personal Branding. (On that note, I’d love to hear from any of YOU if you find interesting information – Send it to me!) We leaders get it! Now it’s up to us to share with others. My belief is that anyone can be a leader in their corner of this world. As we mature, the key to continuing a purposeful life is to keep learning and sharing. That doesn’t take money. That doesn’t take exercise. It just takes curiosity.
I read this article in the Wall Street Journal titled “Who’s the Boss? There Isn’t One.” It talks about having a boss-less office. On one hand, I get it.

Over the past decade, I have had the opportunity to work with thousands of professionals all over the world on building their personal brand in support of their career goals. Some want to be promoted, others want to find their ideal job and others just want to become better at what they do. Although each person I work with is different –with different skills, experience and aspirations - there are a few career management beliefs that ring true with most of the professionals with whom I interact.
Are leaders born or made? That never-ending debate is central to this paper.

Other leaders are nurtured, including many that succeed despite being thrust, often reluctantly, into leadership roles. Leaders from both camps, however, have been known to excel and fail to live up to their potential. So the question that really matters is: “How do good leaders learn to lead?”
If you're redundant, unemployed or keen to make a change to your career your first action is to examine what you can offer an employer. Explore your skills, knowledge and experience. Next think hard about what it is that you want to do with your life from here onwards. It is wise to investigate your options before making judgements about which of them suit you best.
