Is that true?
Surely, we all affect other people around us in some way. If you follow that thought, it means everyone is always a leader.
The question then is, “What kind of a leader am I in terms of the impact I have on those around me?”
So stop, and consider what impact you have on those around you…
Positive? Beneficial? Useful? Welcome? Applauded? Encouraged?
Negative? Toxic? Destructive? Unwelcome? Discouraged?
Somewhere on the continuum between Negative and Positive?
You can’t hide your head in the sand and say, “I am not a leader”. You can, however, choose to move along the leadership continuum to be a more positive leader.
My best wishes, Paul
