Leadership Is Quiet

Leadership is kind.

Leadership is humble.

Leadership gives credit.

Leadership is never afraid to let others shine.

Leadership is more about being than doing.

Leadership is about holding a safe space for others to learn and grow.

Leadership is never about me, my job as a leader, or competing.

Leadership is about telling the truth even when you would rather not.

It’s about having tough conversations which leave others empowered.

It’s about questioning the status quo and believing in your team.

And somehow, everyone feels intimately related to their purpose at work because you actually care. No team member feels left out.

Can you see the true leaders around you?
