individualIn all situations where someone is in a leadership position, the primary goal was to get something accomplished while taking charge of a group of people. He or she did not ‘intend’ to be a leader. There is always a purpose behind the reason you either will become or already have become a leader. If you find this confusing, use the following analogy. You desire a family and find a suitable mate. Then you desire children and you become a parent with this mate. One day you wake up to discover that you are now a leader in a family unit.

 The context surrounding leadership for you is that you are fulfilling a role that your employer needs (i.e., controller, director, manager, supervisor, or executive.) You woke up (hopefully) and realized that you are now a leader in an organization.
