A leader is not just someone people turn to for guidance; they are a person who helps individuals perform to their fullest potential and teams perform to a level reachable only by each member’s complementary strengths. In any given time or circumstance, we can each be called to be a leader, whether in the context of our own families or in the broader world. If we doubt our leadership ability, it may be that we’ve been taught that leaders only act or speak a certain way, which might not fit our personalities or comfort zones. The truth is we all have the ability to help others achieve greatness, and to lead ourselves into new and better ways of being. It’s a matter of learning to look for and leaning on the strengths of those around us—and ourselves.
