Leading is showing up.

You are a leader.

Period.

You are.

Being a leader is not a title that you will one day earn, deserve, justify, or to which you will be promoted. You connect with people every day, therefore you influence others. Period.

It is not always what you plan, what you say, or what you believe. Sometimes, just where you are, how you are, and what your presence means is what leaves the strongest impact.

Leading is showing up.

Great leaders are emulated, not followed. Influence, don’t persuade. Show up and connect. Your influence is needed and your presence matters. Your greatest act of leadership was probably the one that you displayed when you did not think about where it would lead.
