KEY CONCEPTS:We Are All Leaders: True leadership is not about a
"title" in the organization. It is not about someone's DNA or genetic make-up
and it is not about levels of education or socio-economic status. Leadership is a way
of being, not simply something we do. It comes from within us. It is about each of
us "stepping up to the plate" of life and making a difference for ourselves and
for those around us.
Being On Purpose: Once we have accepted the role of
leader in our own lives, the next step is to identify our core values, our purpose/mission
and our leadership vision. These three components together form the road map for each of
us so that we know where we are going, why we are going there, and how we plan to get
there. It is through these guiding principles that we gain clarity, direction and focus
for our lives.

create accountability and support around that direction. To do this, it is critical to
share our values, purpose/mission and vision with those around us and ask for their
participation in our growth process. By actively enrolling others in our plan, we create a
support system, a feedback system and accountability in becoming the person we have
declared ourselves to be.
Leading With Integrity: It is vitally important that our
everyday actions are in alignment with our values, purpose and personal leadership
visions. Being inconsistent in our actions or "ho hum" about our visions will
very quickly sabotage all previous efforts to enhancing personal leadership. And there is
nothing more deflating than witnessing inconsistency, whether it comes from within
ourselves or from others. Hence, it is of the utmost importance for us to be consistent
with being the person we have declared ourselves to be and to confirm that with all our
