Stop Waiting for an Invitation

Leadership requires initiative. Whether leading teams or leading practice, if you want to lead, you need to take the initiative. In my early career I sat back expecting leadership opportunities to be handed to me on a platter. Not surprisingly, non came. I eventually worked out that you have to ‘take the bull by the horns’ and have a go. Taking risks is a huge part of leadership. You will be wrong. You will make mistakes. That’s ok. It’s better than waiting for something to happen.

Stop waiting for an invitation to lead. Get out of your seat and do it.
