Becoming a leader

Have leaders made a conscious decision to follow a path that would lead them to their position or is leadership the unplanned consequence of a series of events?

1517796_10151845776591331_1656162519_oDid leaders make a conscious decision to follow a path that would lead them to their position or is leadership the unplanned consequence of a series of events?

For me, the idea of developing as a leader surfaced over two years ago in a conversation about coaching. I was told: “Australia doesn’t need more coaches. What Australia needs is great leaders.” I had been simmering over these words, told by an amazing woman who was to become my coach, until about six months ago when I chose to voice my desire to become a leader.

So now begins my leadership journey – a journey that will address myself, my relationship and my career.

Will I really ever become a leader? I don’t know. But becoming a leader isn’t an end goal. It is an ongoing commitment to developing myself and having a positive impact on the lives of those around me and beyond. I do enjoy having some power, but ultimately, I’m happiest when I’ve contributed to creating goodness. So that is the reason why I’m committed to doing the hard work – and the easy one! – to become a leader… in the end, a better person.

Where is your leadership journey taking you?

  1. Bravo Kim pour ce texte. Lorsque je vais m’entraîner je suis un leader pour moi même, car je fais quelque chose pour me dépasser!
