What Defines Leadership?

Posted by: in Central East, Uncategorized

Leadership development is an ongoing process. It is a process that takes initiative, dedication and sincerity. KnowledgeConnector understands that and is here to work with you to reach your leadership goals on an ongoing basis.

But what exactly is leadership? What is leadership development? Who is an example of a leader? Are you a leader? Am I a leader?

Last week I hosted a Learning Provider Forum in Hanna to get some feedback on how we can better serve our clients. We discussed what leadership is, who leaders are and what leadership development is. One big ah-ha moment we all had centered around the definition of a leader. I think many people find that word intimidating. We wonder, as volunteers, employees and contributors to our community, if we might deserve such a prestigious title.

The Webster Dictionary defines the word leader as: the quality of character and personality giving a person the ability to gain the confidence of and lead others. Here at KnowledgeConnector we see leaders as people. People who volunteer, work and commit to creating positive changes in their communities. They are mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, grandparents and great grandparents. YOU are a leader. WE are leaders.

So now that we know we are leaders we need to move forward and enhance the skills we already have and maybe develop some new ones.

Let’s start becoming better leaders starting now. Book a leadership assessment workshop with me or take the online A.S.K. Leadership Assessment. Then take advantage of the excellent learning opportunities available here.
