Do You Want to Lead Others?

This may sound like a dumb question, but it is extremely important for you to know if leading others is in fact your pathway to fulfilment.

It may be that your skills and talents lie elsewhere. So many people find themselves thrust into management positions, not because it is what they want to do, but because it is what they feel obliged to do in order to progress in their chosen career. Being honest with yourself on this matter is vital if you are going to find fulfilment in your life.

If you are someone whose focus is on “doing”, rather than supporting or guiding others in their “doing”, then setting your sights on becoming a leader is not the pathway for you. Ultimately, it all comes down to understanding where your passion and creativity lies—knowing which of your unique abilities get your juices flowing?

This may not be a question that you can answer right now. Some people know what they are meant to do with their lives while they are still young. Other people think they know, but then have to make a mid-course correction. Some people never get really clear, either because the gifts they have and their passions are so diverse, or because they prefer to lead a life of adventure.

If supporting and managing others in doing their work is your passion or your default position because you are not sure what else you are supposed to be doing, learning to lead others is most likely what is best for you. In any case, the skills you will learn will always be helpful in some part of your life.
