The secret to leadership is simple. It doesn’t cost anything. You don’t need a degree, certification, or training to be an expert. You can demonstrate this behavior at any age and everyone will know if you are sincere. There’s no faking it.
Caring is a characteristic of authentic leaders. It’s why we follow them, we believe they care about us. And, it’s not what they say, it’s what they do!
It starts with sharing stories about values: “I care about children having a safe place to learn.”. Then, really listening to know what makes people tick. If you show that you care about people, a connection will form.
