Traits of A Leader (Skills)

The reality is that 99 percent of all leadership occurs not from the top but from the middle of an organization. To do nothing in the middle is to create more weight for the top leader to move. For some leaders, it might even feel like dead weight. Leaders in the middle can have a profound effect on an oganization.

Most people would say, “when I get to the top, then I’ll learn to lead”. Those people think that something magical is going to happen when they reach their desired position or leadership destination. Just like any degree from a distinguished University, it doesn’t qualify you to become successful in life, neither does reaching a certain position in an organization make you a good leader.

If you want to succeed, you need to learn as much as you can about leadership before you have a leadership position. Good leadership is learned in the trenches. Leading as well as you can from wherever you are is what will prepare you for more a greater responsibility as a leader.
