1- Leadership happens at all levels.

I ‘ve lead diverse global teams and mentored interns all over the world. And I tell them that I consider each and everyone to be a leader and remind them that leadership must happen at all levels. For drama, I go further to say that each should consider themselves to be “the janitor and the CEO” of what they do and that they must determine how much time they spend at each of those roles based on need and priorities. Leadership must happen at all levels, that’s how organizations build their “bench strength”. You must lead no matter what level you are in the organization, because that is how you hone your skills for the next leadership challenge.

2- The world is always watching.

How you conduct yourself at work, home and in the community is noticed. Everyone notices. Of course as you go higher in an organization, more eyes are on you. But make no mistake, the world is always watching. As a leader, you must represent the change you want to see and reinforce behaviors and values you want to see in your organization. As Vice President Biden said at the 2016 DNC, “…lead by the example of your power and the power of your example”.

3- Get in the arena.

Don’t be afraid to jump in and be part of the solution. Don’t sit back and judge or wait to see what happens. As our 26th president of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt, said: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
