Almost everyone can learn how to lead.

Leadership isn’t a single trait.

It’s a series of learned behaviors.

It’s integrity. It’s decisiveness. It’s problem-solving, relationship-building, teaching ability. Self-awareness. Communication. Influence.

The list goes on and on.

The good news? Pretty much anyone can learn how to lead.

Best way to learn how to be a leader?

Step One: Determine which leadership traits you’d like to embody.

Step Two: Think of where you’re already a leader or in a role where you could possibly be one.

Are you a parent? A scout leader? On a volunteer committee? Have a group of friends?

If so, you have the opportunity to practice leadership constantly.

Put the reps in. That’s the only way to get better at anything.

Think back to being a toddler- you didn’t learn to walk by hearing about walking, talking about walking or watching videos about walking.

You learned how to walk by walking. Repeated action.

It’s not rocket science. It’s taking daily action.
