We all carry around a variety of labels to define ourselves. Maybe you a parent or grandparent? An advocate? A teacher? A guide? A support system? How many of us think that we are leaders? How many of us recognize leadership in those we work with, those we spend our free time with, those we teach?
When we follow our own path and live out our the most authentic self, we inspire others around us to do the same. Inspiring change and growth through your own vulnerability and courage is leadership because you create a movement. Typically, if you have the desire to lead you see things differently and you have a passion to make your mark. There is power on taking the road less traveled and being transparent on not having it all together. There is a misconception and glorified idea that leaders have it all together and know it all, but the best leaders will never claim to know it all or have it all together. They listen, learn, and accept feedback and are not threaten by new ideas, but inspired to challenge their own perspectives and adapt.
This month, Iliana Silva, Regional Marketing and Philanthropic Manager for Kendra Scott, will challenge the way leadership is viewed by highlighting vulnerability and courage and will inspire attendees to have the courage to lead in their current capacity utilizing their most authentic self as a platform to reach others.
