Anyone can be a leader, but it takes a certain type of person be a true leader.
Lisa Rubinstein, author of True Leadership: The Source of Success, explains that:
“A true leader is someone who has found something that they engage in that is congruent with their values, talents, and interests… A true leader is someone who actually has found something that they do, the company they lead, an initiative they are taking on, and something that speaks to them on a core level.”
A leader is someone who people look up to, who people want to listen to. There’s a difference between a leader and a true leader. Each person has the potential to be a true leader, given the right tools.
A true leader has active teammates that want to be the best that they can be.
They understand how every small action makes a big difference. They understand it’s not only about success, but the journey you take to get there.
