What makes you effective as a leader is not the title you hold. Instead, it’s demonstrating an unrelenting focus on helping others succeed in their collective efforts. Unfortunately, many people are placed in leadership positions who are not ready to lead; manage maybe but lead, no.
Authentic leadership is never about authority or power, according to Lolly Daskal. It’s about helping others grow, inspiring people to do something they thought they could never do, demonstrating how the impossible is possible and believing in someone when they didn’t believe in themselves. Leaders generally care about people and they give everyone the opportunity to become the very best version of themselves.
