When Will The Leader Emerge?

In my work with student leaders I’m often asked how one becomes a leader.

My first response: Lead yourself first. That’s a given in each and every situation.

But there are other ways that one can move into a the role of a leader – whether you’re in a position or not.

Here are some of my ideas:

A leader emerges when someone…

· sees a need and meets it.

· has an idea and implements it.

· creates an activity and organizes it.

· comes up with a plan and unleashes it.

· takes a project and runs with it.

· sets a team goal and rallys others around it.

· gathers a team and takes charge of it.

· encounters a problem and takes care of it.

· implements a vision and works toward it.
