Blog Post # 273 – The New Leader

When we are asked to lead, we are probably not ready.

We may feel that we lack certain qualifications to lead.

Too young.

Too inexperienced.

Too temperamental.

But oftentimes, we grow into the leadership position.

We figure things out as we go.

Surround ourselves with smart people.

We read as much as we can to make us the most effective leader possible.

We strive to improve each day.

We try to listen to others more than we talk.

And we take and consider all of these inputs – our own experiences, the things that we have read, the opinions of others – and we make decisions.

We lead when we chart a path for ourselves and our team.

It may seem like we are in unchartered territory.

But if we don’t lead, who will?
