Leadership capacity determines your ability to lead in more complex areas of organizational responsibility. Capacity is influenced by individual initiative that accompanies an organizational investment.
Unique Wiring - Review your profile on a variety of personal assessments: StrengthsFinder, DISC, MBTI, and EI. The unique combination of your results tells a personal story. Your profile represents a package of skills and tendencies that may be applied to greater leadership responsibilities. Does that limit leadership to those with a certain profile? Maybe not. People of varying skills, training, and experience find themselves in positions of leadership. Every leader must review the points at which their personal profile will enhance or inhibit what is required in existing or new opportunities. The leadership development challenge is to leverage the enhancements and manage the inhibitors.
Season of Life – Work-life balance provides a healthy goal for anyone. Certain seasons allow the choice of committing to greater leadership responsibility. It is a question of time and energy. Every choice includes a tradeoff? What are you giving up or choosing not to do in the place of greater professional responsibilities? Does the personal return on investment justify the tradeoff? In some seasons it will, and in other seasons of life it may not.
