Even when we do not have the title or power, we are still leaders in our work. Being a leader means understanding the VIP skills that leaders use daily. We call these Very Impactful Practices. Think of it as 8 things you can do every day to establish your leadership brand. Whether it is learning how to communicate a message effectively or managing conflict in a positive way, these leadership skills create success regardless of your level. It is not about being a boss. Or even being a supervisor. Leadership is about influencing people towards a shared goal. Sometimes the goal may be as a committee, a team, or a department. Getting everyone rowing the same direction as a result of every team member focusing on the goal. You have to lead yourself before you can lead others.
