No one wants a “Yes” man

When you think of leadership how many words come to mind? How many people come to mind when you hear the word leader? Truth is, leadership is different in everyones eyes and no one has the same definition of what a leadership is or what makes someone a leader.

Now, being a leader doesn’t always have to be someone going against the norm.  A leader also is someone who challenges you to think outside the box.  Anyone can say “yes” and agree with you, but a leader isn’t afraid to speak their mind and challenge you to see life from others perspective.
