Everyday Leadership in Action: How to Be a Leader Regardless of Title


The word “leader” is typically associated with high profile, powerful people—dynamic speakers, politicians, business executives, etc. However, in truth, everyone has the ability to be a leader in the workplace each and every day, regardless of title or position in the organizational hierarchy.

If you’re looking to pursue management opportunities in the near or distant future, leadership is a critical skill to develop. However, even those who have no desire to “lead” in an official capacity will benefit from learning this skill. Demonstrating the simple tenants of “everyday leadership” in the workplace establishes you as a highly valuable asset within your organization. Beyond that, it offers a wealth of added personal and professional benefits.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How leadership positively impacts your career and life
  • What leadership really is and is NOT, and why small acts of leadership are often more powerful than big ones
  • How to embrace the leadership mindset and recognize your power to influence
  • Real-world examples of everyday leadership in action (from your fellow admins!)
  • Key skills to develop to take your leadership capabilities to the next level

Hot Tip: People learn through emulation or copying what they see from others, often unconsciously. So, to be an influential (though unofficial) leader, start by modeling the professionalism you want to see in others in your own behaviors first. Over time, people around you will slowly begin following your example.
