Happy Halloween! That also means the national election is only days away. I hope everyone has a plan to vote this year. That may mean early voting, absentee or in-person. It’s important to choose the leaders of our nation that represent the values we admire in leadership.
That brings to mind the question, What is leadership, and who is a leader? In the article, Jacob Morgan writes that a “leader is someone who can see how things can be improved and who rallies people to move toward that better vision.” Notice that this definition does not say a person with a title or job position of leader. Leaders can come in all forms and people can lead from any position. Leaders rally others to move toward a better vision.
We can all be leaders in different aspects of our work and lives. We can find better ways of doing business processes. We work to be more inclusive. We can improve our work culture. I encourage you to look for ways your workplace can be improved and rally others around you to move to the better vision.
