How You Will Benefit
Being a leader inherently implies having a lot of responsibility. What that responsibility is can vary among leadership roles, but there are some universal ways to be a leader. Enthusiasm, having a vision, problem-solving, promoting teamwork, and delegating tasks are all forms of leadership, but may not come naturally to every leader. And when a leader is not up to shape, it reflects on the organization or team as a whole.
For instance, a poll by the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University reported that 70% of Americans blame leadership crisis as a factor in the national economic decline. A Deloitte survey showed top American executives majority of CXOs surveyed (52 percent) and CXOWs (59 percent) do not think that their direct reports have the skills to assume greater leadership roles in the organization.
