Leaders are born as well as created. Everyone has the opportunity to make a noticeable difference regardless of position in a team or length of time in an organization. One’s personal leadership style, detractors and your needs all work together for personal success. As a leader (with or without a title), you are responsible for first accomplishing your work and then for getting work accomplished. Keys factors in leadership are relevant in regard to getting work done, or goals accomplished and objectives met. Leaders get others to follow by influence, through inference and in deference. Management and non-management should discover and embrace what contributes to your personal power and effectiveness as a leader.
