To Get a Promotion - Be A Leader
If you want a promotion, you must be a leader. There are 20 principles & qualities that can make anyone a great leader - if they learn & apply them. No one would deny that we have a leadership crisis in America today. It exists in most all spheres of our society: government, business, the family, and even the church. Everything rises and falls on leadership. More than anything else, the leadership of any group or organization (including families) will determine its success or failure. Everyone is a leader. Leadership is not just for a select few. Years ago, J. Oswald Sanders gave one of the best definitions of leadership ever written. He simply stated, “Leadership is influence.” And sociologists say that even introverted people will influence an average of 10,000 people in their lifetime! It doesn’t matter if you are a CEO or a stay-at-home mom, whether you are the parent of a family, the pastor of a church, and elected government official, an older brother or sister, the president of a company, or a potential leader for the next generation. So it is important to learn to become a better leader. The problem is that, if you are like most people, you may not wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and say, “Now, there’s an effective leader if ever I saw one!” Today, most people don’t believe they can make a positive impact on the world they live in. The truth is that few people are naturals when it comes to leading themselves or others. But everyone has leadership potential. You can become a better leader, regardless of your age, gender, marital status, or profession. The good news is that even though times change, technology marches forward, and cultures vary from place to place, leadership principles are unchanging. The true principles of leadership are constant – whether you are looking at the citizens of ancient Greece, the armies of the last 200 years, the rulers of modern Europe, famous heads of impactful families, or the business leaders of today’s global economy. Leadership principles stand the test of time – they are irrefutable. Is there a need for improved leadership skills in your life? Read more at http://www.truthatlife.com/.
