Lead, follow or get out of the way!

We start our life as an individual and them form a team. In a team either you are a leader or you are follower. Before your are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. Once you become leader, success is all about growing others. People look at you for the solution, for the vision, as a guidance, as a coach, etc. There for many times the leadership position changes at work place and in life. This is we called as situational leadership.

At work place leaders relentlessly upgrade their team, using every encounter as an opportunity to evaluate, coach and build self confidence. To be a great leader we should establish trust with candor, transparency. Leaders never score off their own people by stealing an idea and claiming it as their own. As a leader our job is not to pleased the people or to win a popularity content- we are a leader to lead and see that we can bring best out of the team. So leaders should have courage to take make tough calls when required.

Just because we are senior or boss that doesn't mean we are leader. As its not possible to have source of all knowledge for a human being we should know the right source to get the information. We should inspire people for risk taking and learning by setting the example. Lead by example.
