Developing Your Leadership Identity: How Thoughtful Development Can Unleash Achievement
Leadership is not an innate quality, like having green eyes, that you’re either born with or you're out of luck. While some individuals have a natural brilliance for leadership, even those people understand that their skills must be intentionally refined and thoughtfully used. The 2020 summer olympics have been rescheduled to be held in Tokyo this summer. These world-class athletes have been training for years to develop their skills and hone their techniques. Some have particular biological make-ups that enable high levels of performance. None of them rest on that: they all put in endless hours of training to become the elite performers they are.
Effective leaders are aware of their leadership style and constantly growing in their leadership abilities and execution. How you communicate, the manner with which you deal with conflict, and the way you cast vision all reflect your leadership style. How can you uncover and unleash your leadership style? We have three questions to ask yourself as you cultivate your own leadership identity.
