Last Week's Leadership Definition:
Everyone encounters resistance in their lives. Whether it is within yourself, or the people you are leading, it's important not only to understand everyone involved and communicate effectively, but to figure out what their competing commitments are. These things will no matter what eventually get in the way.
New Leadership Definition:
Leadership is a lot of things, but most importantly it is defined by the culture you were raised in or spent a lot of time in.
Leadership means something different to everyone. Since it is so situational and so cultural, it's almost impossible to put a definition on it that works in all of the situation that leadership applies in. I'm starting to realize how important my life up to this point has been in shaping how I am as a leader and what I view leadership as. It never occurred to me how differently people could view leadership based on their culture.
