Great leadership isn’t about bossiness or battle cries. Nor is it simply about charisma or confidence. The two key elements of effective leadership are in fact clarity and consistency.
If you are clear and consistent in everything you say and do, then your integrity shines through. People around you will feel motivated and empowered. They will naturally fall into step by your side: not because they have to, but because they want to.
And contrary to popular belief, great leaders aren’t simply born. Leadership is very much a learnable skill, and just like any other it can be practised, developed and improved.
