You Don’t Need a Title to be a Leader

I always tell my career mentoring clients that they don’t need a formal leadership title to lead.

The article below lays out five keys to leadership success.

You can put them to work in your life today.

What do you think of the Five Ps of Leadership?

  • Principles
  • Priorities
  • Persistence
  • Patience
  • Passion

I like all five, but if I had to choose just one, it would be persistence. People who keep at it almost eventually come out on top.

I have always thought that Calvin Coolidge a US President said it quite well…

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

That’s what I think.  What do you think?  Please take a minute to share your thoughts with us by leaving a comment.
