True leadership means having the ability to go outside of what is comfortable to you and having the capability to build a strong relationship with those you lead. As a leader you must engage in meaningful conversations and encourage everyone to create and put into practice what they’ve learn. Everyone has something to offer, but it’s rarely offered because they may lack courage, drive or an opportunity. A big mistake leaders often make is not allowing those they lead to enhance their own leadership skills. Leadership is not about controlling followers. Leadership is about providing followers the necessary tools to learn how to lead others. If you don’t allow others an opportunity to lead, you may find yourself standing alone.
