A good leader manages and coaches their teams on how to make a vision a reality, whether it’s winning a championship, completing a project or winning a war.
You don’t have to aspire to be a world-class leader to reap the benefits of leadership skills. Whether you’re aspiring to lead a corporation, a sports team or your own family in a way that promotes honesty, integrity and a purposeful lifestyle, leadership skills are necessary to ensure your success.
Leadership means different things to different people. And, just because someone may have a “title” or be in a leadership role doesn’t necessarily mean he or she is a true leader. The model (definition) of a leader is someone who motivates and inspires themselves and others to move forward to reach a goal or vision to the benefit of everyone.
“Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” - Sam Walton
