The midwife announces, “It’s a leader!”

I wonder if a midwife has ever said those words?

Leaders are made, not born. They are made by their life experiences, high levels of self-awareness, self-management, and a sprinkling of external factors. That means leadership can be learned.

Sure, it can be useful to know a bit about leadership models and theories, but leadership develops through practice, noticing what results you get when you practice, changing what you do, then trying again. Becoming a leader is a journey of discovery.

We hear a lot about leadership these days in this fast-changing world we live in.

“The task of the leader is to get their people from where they are to where they have not been.” Henry Kissinger

Do you want to be a leader? Do you need to be a leader?

Here are the keys to being an effective leader.

My best wishes, Paul
