Default Leadership

This is the last paragraph from an article by Dan Oswald, who writes the Oswald Letter- insights on business and leadership. I think it is inspiring because I feel like he hits the real truth right, and that understanding this makes leaders a lot more real and accessible for each of us, as well as possible for us to become a leader if we desire to lead.

"The bottom line is that it’s not often that leaders are the smartest people in the room. And even if they might be, even more critical to their success will be their ability to demonstrate these other competencies." (Consistent, innovative people-focused, grateful, a good example) "Because just as they say it takes a village to raise a child, it takes more than the efforts and talent of one individual to run a successful organization. Remember, to be a leader, you must have followers—and to gain a following, you must demonstrate the characteristics that cause others to want to follow your lead."
(Sept 10, 2013 article)

Thanks for this. Until recently, I never thought I could be any kind of leader, didn't want the responsibility. As I grew up I was able to see flaws in the ways others would leave, but still refused to be a leader myself.

Now, I am starting to become confident in my abilities, I think I have the potential to not only be a leader, but a good one. I'm going to keep this quote on a sticky note on my desktop.

Thanks again!
