Leadership Starts With You
Leadership is a word I hear often, usually to describe what is lacking from a person, team or organization. It’s easy to proclaim that someone “isn’t a strong leader” or a team “needs more leadership.” I’ve come to observe that what is often missing from one’s assessment of “leadership” is a sense of ownership and — well, leadership.

The best way to make leadership a continuous practice of learning and development is through reflection — ideally through writing. To grow your leadership, I suggest you take time to reflect on what you observe and learn — from yourself and others. Write down what you’ve learned from practicing leadership and what you want to try next. Your life can be a leadership laboratory, and you are the primary researcher. You will teach yourself more than you realize. I highly recommend a practice of writing daily for leadership growth and development.
