    Very good post, @Corina. I would encourage those interested in leadership to 1) Understand the distinctions between doing, managing and leading. They’re quite substantial; 2) Know the difference between merely having a great title, the money, the corner office, etc. and truly leading: It’s about motivating and inspiring others to follow you for the good of the organization; 3) Study Servant Leadership, which I believe is the most effective form of leadership; 4) Accept that you can start to actually lead quite early in your career. Back in my agency days, I knew senior account executives who were leaders, and executive vice presidents who weren’t; and 5) Learn from the best. In”Taking The Lead,” my monthly column in PRSA’s Public Relations Tactics, I share leadership counsel from some of the most respected leaders in the PR/Communications industry. I love how these leaders share openly about their leadership challenges and worst leadership mistakes. I hope it’s OK to share a link to the December column:

    Thank you for the shoutout, Corina! And what kind words – I hope we are half as nice as you say we are. 🙂 This is a super post, and I love Ken’s comment about the difference between doing, managing, and leading. Also – great headline, btw.

    Thank you so much for your comment, Ken!

    I love the Servant Leadership concept. After all it’s about helping others succeed.

    I agree with you, leadership is about inspiring people to become their best.
