Who am I as a Leader?

Leadership is the accomplishment of a goal through the direction of human assistants. The man who successfully marshals his human collaborators to achieve particular ends is a leader. A great leader is one who can do so day after day, and year after year, in a wide variety of circumstances.”  W.C.H. Prentice (1961)

A leader is a person who influences a group of people towards the achievement of a goal.

While definitions of “leader” have evolved, they retain some core elements. Regardless of whether one has an official leadership role, effective leaders envision change, motivate and inspire others to align their efforts and resources toward achieving that vision.

Who you are as a leader will depend on your unique personality traits, attributes, experiences, skills and expertise, as well as your context. Developing your leadership ability is a lifelong learning journey.

The journey begins with familiarizing yourself with leadership and different leadership styles.  We encourage you to reflect on your leadership experience, explore leadership self-assessments and seek feedback on your strengths and areas of improvement from those who know and work with you.  We also encourage you to explore the “Knowing Yourself” leadership section for a deeper dive into self-awareness and other aspects of emotional intelligence.
