Learning Leadership

We often say that leadership is an innate ability. But like other traits, you can become a better leader by placing yourself in proximity to others who are already in positions of successful leadership. John Maxwell has a great blog post about it:

“As a leader, make yourself accessible to the next generation in your organization by letting them inspect how you lead. Give them priority time to ask questions, and offer them an inside look at the way you plan for the future. Most importantly, entrust significant decisions to them. If you’re making all of the important decisions on the team, then you’re not successfully developing leaders.”
