Make Yourself

Leadership Is A Process

1. THINK "PROCESS," NOT "POSITION." Leadership is a process, not a title. It's about leading with others in ways that establish direction, create alignment and build commitment. Rather than looking for someone else to be a leader, individual contributors need to ask themselves: "What am I bringing to the leadership process? How can I better facilitate the process of effective leadership in my group or in my project team?"

2. UNDERSTAND YOUR LEADERSHIP BRAND. Your leadership brand is created by the ways you behave, react and interact. It affects your network, and it is linked to your effectiveness. You have a reputation based on how you get things done and how you interact with others. To leverage your leadership brand or to steer it in a different direction, you need to get a clear picture of how others perceive you today. Start paying attention to how you work - not just what you know or what you accomplish. How do you learn? How do you share information, make decisions and influence others? How do you build and nurture both day-to-day and strategic relationships?

3. TAKE CONTROL. You are in charge of your leadership brand, so invest in your learning and development as a leader. Your boss or your organization may not always tell you exactly what is needed or hand you the tools and experiences that will boost your effectiveness. Take time to think about your current job and future career. Begin by focusing on your number one workplace challenge. How does your leadership brand support your work today? What would happen if you could be more effective? How could improving your own leadership ability help get you there? What do you need to learn or change to improve your leadership skills and hone your leadership brand?

4. YOU ARE SEEN, HEARD AND VALUED. The company needs you to be as effective as you can be. Your co-workers do, too. Even though you don't have "manager" in your job title... or don't have direct reports... or are new to your career, your leadership abilities are critical both to your own success as well as your company's. When you send these messages - clearly and consistently - the people in your organization will see that they can contribute to something bigger than themselves: the process of leadership.
