There is a misconception in today's society that says leaders always lead from the front. They are at the top and everyone else is following them. This is far from the truth and in reality, a leader's role is interchangeable as someone who leads from the font, behind, and beside. Shownotes are at www.joytolead.com/lead-from-the-front Defining your unique leadership styleWhat’s amazing about leadership is, it is not defined one way. You are already a leader and you can thrive at any of these three positions, they are interchangeable.  We as people are evolving everyday, and it’s the same with the way you lead! One thing will always remain constant, and that is your core values. Your unique voice and personal strengths will continue to change. When you know your values, strengths, and voice, and how to tap into, listen, and cultivate them, then you will be able to lead in any season. There is a voice inside all of you that motivates you and draws you forward and outward. Listen to that voice and let it lead you so that YOUR leadership doesn’t stay hidden.Every human being on this planet is meant to be a leader, don’t ever disqualify yourself! For more information on the Leadership Academy, visit www.joytolead.com/academy!

Did you know… what you focus on in others affects HOW you interact with them? It affects the expectations you set, your tone, your conversation, and so much more. This is why it’s so important to be a strengths-focused leader. As Tom Rath wrote in Strengths-Based Leadership, “If you focus on people’s weaknesses, they lose confidence. At a very basic level, it is hard for us to build self-confidence when we are focused on our weaknesses instead of our strengths.”In today’s episode I’m sharing a workshop on strengths based leadership I gave my Leadership Academy. We’re beginning sign ups for the next cohort, so head to www.joytolead.com/academy to learn more!For more information on the Leadership Academy, visit www.joytolead.com/academy!To learn more about the Dream to Team Hiring Course & Template Bundle, click here!Need 1:1 Hiring Support and Strategy?
