Leadership Professionals are always looking to advance and now their opportunity has arrived to do so. Despite what many think, leadership is not a “top down” concept. It is cultivated with humility and discipline. It merges the passion of the heart with the ability of the mind. Hillier notes leadership is all about people—embracing those you are in charge of and winning over those you need to work with—not about risk aversion or management fads. Leaders also act out of moral courage, take advantage of crises, accept failure and remain perpetually optimistic. Whether on the front lines of a business or in any situation that requires strong communication and vision, leaders go with their gut and make the tough decisions look easy.
