Occasionally, I stray from this blog and post something on my LinkedIn profile. Usually when a topic is evergreen and I think it might be helpful for years to come.
One of those recent topics was about what a leader is, and I suppose by the nature of that reveal, what a leader isn't.
Many of my clients are clear that they are leaders. Their job titles, in fact, begin with a "C," and they have a great deal of vision and responsibility. Plain and simple.
For other clients, however, they're still feeling it out, or they're laying their leadership groundwork, or they're sensitive about calling themselves a leader. Still others say they're a leader, but have little to prove it.
My LinkedIn post, "Who or What is a Leader?" offers a simple method for determining whether you're a leader, or still a leader in the making.
