Are You Leading Your Work?
While we all don’t have direct reports or positions of authority, everyone can be a leader in their work and a role model for their colleagues. Leaders believe in the organization’s mission and remind themselves regularly how they contribute. Leaders role model what the organization values and motivate and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. Even without a leadership job title, it’s likely you are already leading your work in various ways. Ask yourself the following questions to discover where you are leading your work. Then, rate yourself on how well you execute, and reflect to find areas to begin improving your leadership characteristics.
