Follow or Lead, There's No Bystander - Felipe Castro Quiles

1️⃣ If you want to follow, find the right leader: When you're in a position of following someone, whether in a professional or personal context, it's crucial to choose the right leader to follow. Look for leaders who possess qualities such as integrity, vision, empathy, and a track record of effective decision-making. Evaluate their leadership style, communication skills, and ability to inspire and motivate their followers. Surrounding yourself with the right leader can provide guidance, mentorship, and opportunities for growth.

2️⃣ If you want to lead, find the right reason: When aspiring to become a leader, it's essential to have a strong and meaningful reason for wanting to lead. Define your purpose and vision for leadership. Understand what you want to achieve and how you can positively impact others. Leaders driven by noble reasons and a clear sense of purpose are more likely to inspire trust and loyalty in their followers. Your motivation should extend beyond personal gain and encompass a desire to serve, innovate, or make a positive difference in the lives of others.

3️⃣ Be Authentic: Whether you're following or leading, authenticity is key. Authentic leaders are genuine, transparent, and true to their values. Authentic followers recognize and respect authentic leaders.

4️⃣ Ensure Alignment: When following a leader, ensure that their values and goals align with yours. When leading, make sure your vision aligns with your personal values and the needs of your team or community.

5️⃣ Pursue Impact: A leader's impact extends beyond their immediate circle. Choose or become a leader who can drive meaningful and positive changes, to achieve continuous improvement.

💭 Leaders and followers alike should continually strive to improve. Act ▶
