Leading from the Inside
Leading from the inside. Leadership is not the same thing as authority. You don’t need letters before or after your name, or a special title to be a leader. You don’t need a title at all.
Leadership is less about role and all about a choice. We all know and have experienced authorities…people who have manager or boss or charge nurse or supervisor in their titles who are terrible leaders. I’m sure you have experienced this. I know I have. And it’s really unfortunate when that happens…because it doesn’t have to. Great leadership is a skill that can be taught, but being a true leader takes more than just learning some management skills.
Great leadership is not something that comes only from the outside at all….it’s an inner thing. That’s why I called this Leading from the Inside. Leading people is not the same as bossing them around or as managing them. Not at all. It’s more intuitive than that.
