According to Wikipedia, Leadership has been described as the “process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task.”
The world needs Leadership and Leaders in all areas of life from business, schools, public services, governments, church’s, families, sports – all areas of life where people interact. Not just any kind of leadership, “Positive Leadership.” As long as the “common task” is for the benefit of people, that is positive leadership.
Drew Dudley believes leadership is not a characteristic reserved for the extraordinary. He works to help people discover the leader within themselves.
We have all changed someone’s life — usually without even realizing it. In this funny talk from TEDxToronto, Drew Dudley calls on all of us to celebrate leadership as the everyday act of improving each others lives. .http://www.ted.com/talks/drew_dudley_everyday_leadership.html
An integral part of and a major component of leadership development is “the healing process that takes place mentally, emotionally and spiritually,” within people embarking on the journey of discovering the leader within themselves. To really develop your leadership skills requires an honest assessment of You … the good, the bad and the ugly… who you are… “The Man in the Mirror.” It can be a life changing, empowering and rewarding process along the journey.
What if each of us decided to discover that leader within ourselves? What kind of an impact would that have on the world? What if we put businesses together that were staffed with leaders and people working on leadership? What kind of business could you create? How tough would that business be in a competitive market place? Is this possible? Would it be worthwhile? Would this be a good time? Right Now! Is there a better time?
