The "It" Factor
Where is Yours?
We read about it, study it, watch it, and sometimes admire it. But how do we know if we have it? How do we know if the “it” is something that we will ever be able to achieve? How do we know if we even want “it”? The “it” is leadership. “It” can be awe inspiring when we see a leader command the respect of their subordinates and superiors. “It” can make us want to be just like that person — how they carry themselves, how they solve problems, and how they deal with situations that only someone in their position can address. Leadership is something that can be hard to achieve, yet easy to lose.
