If there is a question I ask myself every single day, sometimes unintentionally, it is ‘what is leadership’? I may not even ask it in those precise words. I may not even ask it in the context of a group of people. But in order to take on the things I do, and the things I want to accomplish, every day this question must be posed.
Leadership is often a term people give prestigious status. It is often looked at as something only people with certain gifts can obtain. But in reality, it’s something we can choose to take on at any moment. In the moment we are presented with a situation, we can choose to handle it from a context of Leadership, or not. This choice is neither right or wrong, good or bad. It simply is a choice that delineates a result with a lasting impact, for a larger vision, and likely benefit more than oneself.
