It takes a lot and a little more to become a successful leader.
Your personal qualities are only the starting point. As much as you need to be on top of your subject, you also require soft skills. Besides this, a leader must also be a ‘dealer in hope’ (in the famous words of Napolean Bonaparte).
All of these put together play a huge role in the development of your leadership skills.
The good news is that no one is a born leader. Leadership skills can be learned over time with some patience and practice.
Of course, one way to do that is to join a Toastmasters club and learn or improve skills in a safe and supportive environment. If you’re interested, find a club near you here – https://www.toastmasters.org/find-a-club.
Additionally, here are a few basic ways to improve your leadership skills.
