Do you have what it takes to be a leader? For years people have been trying to lead others by taking on a position or title without regard to what people really want or need! Luckily I have had the opportunity to share leadership with some of the most influencial, knowledgeable, motivating, sharing, caring and loving people that you'd ever want to meet!
They spend their time, day in and day out, researching, writing, helping, befriending and caring about people that have become like family to them... All of my teams are like that! thank God...
But...there are people who, while sitting back and doing nothing, expect their teams to flurish and are wondering why the teams fold! These people need a gentle push to get them going! They need to get involved in their teams to keep the teams not only informed but interested as well!
Do you want to know the secret to great leadership... Do you want to lead a team and be successful at it? Study the team leaders in all of the teams that you're on! See what they do and why they are successful!
Do they Huddle with their teams? Do they provide useful information, do they give great tips for weightloss, nutrition, exercise, classes, changes in Spark people, keep things fresh, keep you informed, perhaps keep you entertained with birthday forums, quizzes, puzzles, humor... do you see what I'm getting at?
All successful people became successful, because they gave some talent or ability in the service of others. They HELP People! so what do you think... If you're a leader do you do all these things and more? I know my teams all do! The leaders that I work with are all this and MORE!!
Think about all these things if you would like to become a leader! You have to lead by example. If you're not prepared to take on the awsome responsability of nurturing your team, instructing your team, then turn it over to someone else who will be an effective leader!
If you can contribute in some way to others, no matter how small your talent. You too, can become successful. They say if you want to be the best you have to act the part, feel the part, live the part and do what you have to do to be that leader!
No one achieves success without being of service to someone!
Successful people don't use others, other people make use of the talents of successful people
Do you have what it takes to be a leader? You could lead a small group of runners to get in shape for a marathon, You could lead a Zumba Class or perhaps yoga, karate, judo, cycling club, SPARK TEAM... Whatever your talent you could lead or help lead! The great part of it is... you don't have to be a Co-Leader to lead part of your Spark Team! Just ask your leader to post a forum that you want to lead and look after! This helps get the whole team involved and helps the team grow! The success of your team does depend on participation of the team! The more you participate the more everyone will learn!
Who knows... maybe you'll start your own Spark Team... but for now... get your Spark Friends involved in your team and make it the best Spark team ever... it's up to you!
You may not know it... but you're a great leader already! It's your time to be great! It's your time to get involved as much as possible with your team!
