When Did You Know You Were A Leader?

When we are growing up there is usually an event that happens in our lives that separates us from childhood and ushers us into full adulthood--something happens and we step up on our own behalf.

I believe we go through a similar transformation when we step into our Leader selves. Can you remember when you became a Leader?

Was because of a job you were given? A promotion? Staff? An achievement? Acknowledgement?

Did Leadership start when lots of people filled a room to hear you talk? Or read books you've published? Or gave you social proof such as likes and shares?

What was it that made you a Leader?

I have only one criteria for Leadership.

You will know you are a Leader when you recognize your ability to influence and you choose words and actions because you want to make a difference for other people.

That's it.

You might think you are a leader when you are given authority and power but real Leadership generates its own power. And even with that power, Leadership is still a servant's position.

We usually don't remember captains of industry but we do remember people like Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr. or Malala.

When was your Leadership Birthday? Who are you serving?
