Leadership is a gift given and received

You aren’t invited to lead because of what it will do for you. You aren’t invited to lead because of what you have done. You aren’t invited to lead because of your role.

People follow because of the value you create for & with others. Leaders help people build shared purpose, vision and understanding, create new capabilities and find paths to action. The action generated from leadership helps people to create new value together.

Anyone who works to help others create value can lead. Give the gift of your talents at this collaborative work and others will recognise your actions with the gift of leadership.
