You have what it takes. You know you are the most suited person for the job. You’re so positive that you can lead a lot of people towards good business…Or so you think. Because if you really are, then why did John, from the other department, get the job you’ve been dying to have since you entered the company?
Leadership is more than just being confident that you can manage a number of people and make them follow your lead. Each one of us influences at least ten thousand other people during our lifetime. Hence, the question is not whether we can influence these people, but in what manner shall we influence them.
There are instances that competitors suddenly give up believing that they just can never be leaders. Maybe I’m not really born to lead, they think. On the contrary, the key to effective leadership does not depend primarily in the abilities we are born with, but in techniques, skills, character, and qualities that we are open to develop throughout life.
Leadership does not come out merely from the inner personality of the individual or from his philosophy of leadership, but from his enthusiasm to become the person other people will follow. This means that how a leader reacts when his power or safety is challenged, and how he interprets the world around him, is crucial to developing strong and effective leadership qualities.
It is true that there is always room for improvement for every one of us. David Rooke, partner at Harthill Consulting and co-author of the Harvard Business Review article Leadership Can Be Learnt, said that there is room for us all to develop and maximize our leadership capabilities.
“The lessons for businesses to learn lie in their willingness to make leadership development a central pillar in the way they operate and a powerful force for transforming their fortunes,” he said.
