Six steps to leadership
What is key to become a leader, get the leadership quality in someone. No doubt knowledge is one important factor. But apart from the knowledge there are many other things that takes a person to the doorsteps of leadership.

Make sure we know what our service to the world is

We must feel lucky enough for having taken birth as humans. In this mammoth world where there is no dearth of living creatures, human beings are the most powerful bunch of creatures. And as they say, with great power comes great responsibility, thus to keep up the essence of humanism we must remember to pay our service to this world.

We all know that every individual is different from one another, but it will make sense only when we standout to make a difference. We might not always succeed in doing great things, but we can always try out and do small things in a great mannerism.

Mastery over a particular aspect

It's agreeable that life is too short and one must always try out his hand on every possible thing, so that during the perorating junctures of his life, he's not left with regrets. But, the story doesn't end here. It's true that we must taste every paltry of life's recipe, but also need to have one favorite cuisine, only then we can lead. In a simpler form, we can compare success and leadership to digging a well.

If we are handed with the task of digging a well in a plot of land and find water. And every other day, after digging say 5-10 meters we keep changing spots and start digging again, our hunt for water would never end. Rather, with patience we need to continue digging in one particular spot until our quest for water is fulfilled. Thus, in a nutshell, one person cannot be the best one in all that he endeavors at the same time. However, he can always have a mastery over one particular aspect.

Acquire the art of speaking pitching our point clear

Some people are good writers than communicators or vice-versa. But, what differentiates a commoner from a leader is he has both of these. Most important is the art of speaking. If we stretch back to our school days, we can reminisce how during the classes of certain teachers the best things we did was to take a peaceful nap, doesn't mattered how important the subject was!! It's all about the art of speaking and presentation skill.

Most boring stuffs under the sun can be spoken and presented in an utmost attractive and lively manner. Believe it or not, but while taking to someone, we mostly relate to the person who is speaking and not what he is speaking!! Having magnanimity in the spoken words must be possessed by a leader. However, this is not something that we can learn over night, but need to be grasped and acquired over the time.

Learn to communicate succinctly making a difference in the lives of others

As leaders our responsibility even multiples and we need to express ourselves with added care, because somewhere, somehow our words are impacting someone's life. We must try to make a difference in others' lives. Life is all about inspiration and igniting all the souls nearby, because at the end this is what will take us to heights.

We can prove our leadership only when we can inculcate thousands of leaders amongst us. And leadership is all about igniting souls which is a never ending viral process. This is what would perhaps certify us as successful leaders.

Cultivate your ability to save

The greatest duty of a leader is to take responsibility for failures and impart all the credits to the team for successes. Problems synonymously challenges are bound to interrupt our journey, but as a leader we must never let it overtake us. As leader our responsibility is to take the team to the succeeding juncture under a canopy of safety without having nudged them about the problems that the leader has to tackle.

At the end when it all ends well, then must make it a point to say, 'it's because of the team.' If something goes out of order have enough guts to say, 'As leader, I take sole responsibility for the entire course of action.'

Our success must be loud enough

We are subjected to most of the challenges, criticized, laughed on, in our lives by our closed ones. But, we can't always shut off the hate mongers around us through word of mouth or a ferocious fight and doing so is highly unsolicited. Thus, we must make it a point to make our success loud enough, so that our work speaks for us and our success make the noise.
