Are you a born leader? Or is great leadership developed? 100 years of research tells us that both are possible. Leadership is a complex and sophisticated role. There is no question that some remarkable people enter the world with the confidence it takes to make difficult decisions, along with a desire to lead. Other leaders are nurtured or even thrust into leadership roles.
So how do good leaders learn to lead? Good leaders develop through constant learning about their personalities, relationships and careers, not to mention the kind of leader they want to become. And although there are no silver bullets for becoming a good leader– because everyone takes a custom-made path — the journeys of the leaders can share several elements.
Great quotes from these excellent leaders:
There is no such thing as work life balance, it’s called work life juggling.
We fail forward, there is no such thing as failing backward.
Failure means you tried and it’s an opportunity to try again.
We win as a team and fail as a team, it’s not an individual sport.
What would you tell your 20 year old self? take more risks, find the joy, slow down a bit and be more strategic.
