Leadership is often quiet. A true leader doesn’t need to be the loudest person in the room. Nor do they need to make controversy through outlandish behavior. In fact, doing so is contrary to inspiring and motivating others to cooperate. Instead, real leaders–the ones that motivate and inspire others–do so through congruence. They do what they say, practice what they preach, and allow their palpable presence to do the talking for them. An authentic leader listens and creates space for the thoughts, feelings, and opinions of others to be heard. Because that’s what it takes to lead–fostering an inclusive environment that privileges communication and the sharing of ideas.
