Exert authority where you don't have any — use influence to prove your leadership chops; Openly discuss your ambitions — it's safer to take a "show, don't tell" approach.

5 Things People Must Change About The Way They Lead

5 Things People Must Change About The Way They Lead | leadership in the modern society | Scoop.it

Leadership is about sharing, giving – making those around you better.   Leadership is about uniting and inspiring teams to optimally perform.   Leadership is caring about a societal cause that the business can influence.  This is what most businesses refer to as corporate social responsibility.   

 

Leadership is indeed a social responsibility, yet many people are out of touch with how to be an effective leader.   Many people believe that because they carry an important title or have tenure within the organization, others will automatically follow them.  

 

Today, leadership is much more than just authority – it’s about being ethical and staying true to your beliefs and values.

Steve Urquhart's curator insight, May 1, 2013 8:19 AM

If you can’t be clear about what you stand for, it will be impossible for you to lead with clarity.

Rik Stegehuis's curator insight, May 8, 2013 12:05 AM

My interpretation of Leadership that I like to share with you today is that Leadership begins within ourselves first, before anything else.

 

How can we be a true, authentic and integrated leader if we do not really know who we are? Ask yourself right now: WHO am I ? It's not as easy as you think, because I am sure you end up giving answers to WHAT am I or WHAT do I do? That's the way we were programmed to answer: it reflects WHAT we are on the outside, not WHO we are on the inside. Get the point?

 

Bring this into your personal life, become a leader of yourself first. Then become the leader of your own life. Live your live on your terms, not on someone else's...

 

To get started on this, take some time for yourself without any distractions, in a different place than your usually are and reflect. Write down (with a pen and paper) what your Personal Vision is (your WHY), your Personal Mission (your WHAT) and your Personal Values and Principles (HOW) and be surprised about yourself what's coming up to the surface...DO IT and HAVE FUN!
