Leadership Journey

Leadership really is a journey and often a journey or process you don't realize you're on. It's not simply a position that you reach or even stay in. It's fluid. It's a role some of us find ourselves in for a period of time or something we move in and out of. For others, we lead informally from amongst, supporting and directing our teams and colleagues. Some of us exhibit raw leadership skills throughout our lives that are cultivated as we grow and other's of us never dream or even desire to be in a leadership role, but somehow find ourselves in that position for one reason or another.
