You are a leader.
Did you know that?
You might be the leader of a business, charity, church, school, club, or a family.
The titles vary. Here are a few:
- Board Member
I’m convinced that if I were to look at each of the roles I serve in through a leadership lens, I would be more effective.
For example, it is common for me to share, “I’m the father of three children.” What if I said (and acted upon) the statement, “I’m leading three children.”?
It moves the statement from passive to active. You see, saying “I’m a father” only shares a historical fact. Stating “I’m leading” shares the need for ongoing attention and action!
It makes sense, doesn’t it? By saying, “I’m leading three children,” it indicates that I’m:
- Actively involved
- Required to set the example
- Teaching them
- Equipping them to become productive citizens!
Instead of saying, “I’m the CEO of I Was Broke. Now I’m Not., LLC,” it is much more weighty to say, “I’m the leader …”
Who and what are you leading?
