Titles are official representations of control, duties and responsibilities. Titles give positional authority. Leadership, on the other hand, is representative of power and influence. Leadership is about what you say, what you do, how you engage, and how you support others. Leaders can be found making things happen at every level in a company from entry level to executive. Leadership transcends titles. Take the LEAD to accelerate your career.
Lead Your Colleagues
Productivity and performance in the workplace are based on collaboration and interdependence. Actively contribute to organizational goals with a positive attitude, a helping hand, and a willingness to adapt and be flexible. Establishing yourself as someone your colleagues can count on to show respect, problem solve, and celebrate and empower others sets you apart as a leader. Accelerate your career by being a stellar team player.
Lead Your Supervisor
Lead your supervisor by learning to manage up. Managing up that you do what is possible to make your boss’s job easier. Managing up is essentially managing your manager which requires getting to know them, their goals, and their vision. If you plan to stay in your job – regardless of how well your supervisor is performing – it is in your best interest to make your relationship work. No manager wants someone on their team who will double cross them or try to bring them down. The person who is reliable and responsible becomes invaluable. Accelerate your career by supporting your boss’ success.
