Leaders are not born, they are developed. They are developed from within their own hearts and minds. Great leadership is determined by the ability to inspire trust, loyalty, respect and commitment in others.
Although leadership does often require action, it is not about action. It is about being.
Leadership starts in our hearts and minds with our character and who we are, and then it is eventually displayed in our actions. It is about first tapping into and examining our qualities, beliefs, and character and then exhibiting them to others.
Leadership is not about our actions, it is about whom we are and what is reflected in our actions.
