Many desire to be a leader, whether it’s in the home, on the job, or in the community. Leadership—great leadership—is an issue that is paramount to our ability to thrive in a world that is constantly changing. Teams win and lose. Companies succeed and fail. For this reason, leadership is a necessary aptitude.
Leadership means that you have the self-confidence to believe you can make a difference and the courage to risk it all because you believe it matters. Leaders should not be defined by popularity, but by their willingness to take risks, their ability to share credit, their strength to admit errors, and their willingness to pick themselves up and keep going.
