Leadership is a learnable skill
True leadership isn’t reserved for the few who sit at the top. It’s the responsibility of anyone who belongs to a group, and that means all of us. We all need to step up, take the risk and put our interests second—not always—but when it counts.
Whether we’re leading armies, multinational corporations or a fledgling home-based business, the message is the same: We all have the responsibility to become the leaders we wish we had.
- Everyone has the capacity to be a leader.
- Leadership is a practicable, learnable skill.
- Leadership is like a muscle—if you practice, you will become a strong leader. If you stop practicing, you will become a weak leader.
- Leaders are not responsible for the job. Leaders are responsible for the people, responsible for the job.
