Not everyone is a leader by title, but we can all be leaders by choice.
A choice in who you show up as everyday.
A choice in what you focus on (common goals vs personal interests.)
A choice to speak up and share your wisdom & expertise (even when you aren’t specifically asked to do so.)
A choice to have the tough conversations and deal with challenges head on.
A choice to take radical responsibility in your work and do whatever it takes to honor commitment.
A choice to treat people with respect and trust that they are bringing their best to the table.
A choice to continually improve your leadership ability (there is no finish line.)
I don’t care if you are the CEO or the assistant – the face of the company or behind the scenes. How are you choosing to show up as a leader today?
