Do you want to be a leader or a follower?
Do you naturally want to take the lead on projects?
Do you enjoy molding a team for a common good?
If you are in the position to lead, you most certainly want to be a great leader. It’s an ambition that can take many forms: You may envision making an impact with your company or making change on a global scale.
Whatever your situation, there are specific skills that can help you become the leader you want to be and know you can become.
Here are 10 important ones from Lolly Daskal:
