Happy Tuesday and Day 208 of Another 100 Days of Hannah ...and Counting, y'all!
So, there are something like 4 topics flitting around in my brain this evening, and I honestly don’t know which one to write about… hmm…
I guess I’ll stop thinking and just start writing.
What does it take to be a good leader? That’s a question that I’ve sort of been asking myself today, after hearing of the potential of taking on more of a leadership position in a project.
To take a step back, I’ve never really considered myself a leader. Sure, I may be able to lead things, but power and authority? That’s not really much of a draw for me, and as much as I enjoy performing, I don’t necessarily crave the spotlight. I’d rather be in more of a supporting role, where I don’t have to make the big decisions, and, frankly, where I’m not responsible if everything falls apart.
The more I think about it though, the more I realize that the words from a recent leadership podcast episode ring true: we are all leaders. Yes, our positions as leaders may vary differently, but virtually everyone holds some degree of leadership in life.
Which brings me back to the beginning – what does it take to be a good leader?
I’ll admit – tonight, I don’t really have the answers. But, I’m looking. Wanna join in the journey with me?
Catch y’all tomorrow,
