Does everyone have the ability to lead?

This post is adapted from a section that was cut from the manuscript of my book titled, A Day of Hope.

Does everyone have the ability to lead? 

The answer is “yes” and “no.” 

Yes, because there is always going to be an area a person can lead in. A mother is going to have to lead her three children when their father is not around. A CEO is going to be able to lead because he has authority.

No, because there are also going to be areas that we don’t lead. These are areas that we shouldn’t lead in where we don’t have authority, a voice, or ability to lead.

Leadership takes some skill, but that skill can be developed and implemented. 

Question: Do you believe everyone has the ability to lead?
