Our lives are filled with moments when we are asked to step into the role of leadership. Skillful leadership is needed in all aspects of our everyday lives and is not exclusive to a business environment. Being skilled at leadership includes self-discipline, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence. Whether or not we’re employed full-time, these skills continue to be needed to enhance our effectiveness whether we’re running a household, participating in a church group, belonging to an activist group in your community, or the many other groups in which we participate. We all need to be lifelong learners in developing strong and effective leadership and problem-solving skills as we continue to engage with others. Callaway says, Part of the goal of a leader is literally to help cultivate and bring forward the innate capacities of the people around them.” She encourages us to cultivate self-awareness and emotional intelligence so that we can express the kind of excellence that society is needing now.
