There will be setbacks. Make sure you build an internal, possibly even external, support system that can get you through the inescapable missteps and disappointments along the leadership journey. You may lose some battles, but keep your eye on the bigger picture. The world needs exemplary leaders. And it needs exemplary leaders at all levels and in all functions. Your constituents, as well as your colleagues, need you to become the best leader you can be. They need you to lead with your best self.

There is just no hard evidence to suggest that leadership is imprinted in the DNA of some people and not others. We've collected assessment data from millions of people around the world. We can tell you without a doubt that there are leaders in every profession, every type of organization, every religion, and every country, from young to old, male and female. It's a myth that leadership can't be learned—that you either have it, or you don't. There is leadership potential everywhere we look. ” is not a very productive question.
