I used to think that the word “leadership” solely means “to lead”. In that case, “leading” implies on bravely standing up for others and taking blames when something goes wrong. Perhaps that was the reason I never wanted to become a leader. It seemed all responsibilities will be on me.
However, as I've experienced challenges, I figured out that leadership values are not only built on responsibility but also other important qualities such as communication, strategy, teamwork, passion, and integrity.
I can see now that leadership is not all about being in the front but it is more about creating positive influence driven by passion.
