“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way,” says author John Maxwell. To that I would add: Good leaders take the time to hone their skills and always seek ways to grow.
If you want to improve your leadership skills, these TED Talks can help:
- On Being a Leader
A Powerful Way to Unleash Your Natural Creativity
- How Great Leaders Inspire Action
- Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
Angela Lee Duckworth
- Want to Sound like a Leader? Start By Saying Your Name Right
- How to Start a Movement
As Brian Tracy, one of my favorite authors, advises, “Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.” These talks are a good place to start.
