It’s a skill that not everyone can truly understand or achieve, and one that can take a long time to cultivate, but if you have developed leadership, then you have one of the most valuable skills on the market. In fact, there are some career choices where leadership, above all else, is what helps you do the job. So check out that these careers where leadership matters most!
Growing raw potential
It might not often be considered as such, but teaching is most definitely a leadership role. The people that have been my teachers have been the people I have most respected in the workplace. In many cases, you’re given a large degree of free reign to choose a course plan of your own design and to implement it in methods of your own choosing. You have to keep students engaged, all the while keeping an eye on individual progress to help foster growth specific to that one person’s potential. It’s not an easy job and it’s often thankless, but the feeling of successfully reaching a student for the first time or seeing their final result is hard to beat.
Helping the lost
You can take that similar kind of focus on fostering growth but apply it in a one-to-one or a one-to-team basis with a much more personal and real-world approach. If you train as a coach, you’re training to find the best way to use your natural leadership to help those who might be having trouble with their professional and personal lives. It’s about teaching success not only in business but without the need to sacrifice personal happiness. It is still the encouragement of my coaches that I remember whenever I am having a tough day.
Telling the story
More and more, the profession of journalism is changing at the very top of the field. Journalists don’t just report the events as they happen. More than ever, they are the opinion-shapers and the tastemakers of society. Whether you choose to report on society’s many challenges or within a field of media, entertainment, or leisure that interests you, you can only succeed in journalism if you’re willing to blaze your own path. You have to find your own voice and often defend it against some of the internet’s most rabid modern denizens in this digital society.
Setting the course
Sometimes, the leadership you provide can be more important than to what end you actually apply it. Working as a manager might allow you to surgically insert yourself into any kind of industry. So long as you have the skills to help motivation, to help productivity, to streamline processes, and to manage team cohesion, there’s no industry that you shouldn’t be able to find success in. Of course, if you can find a management position in an industry that you have some experience in, you’re more likely to get it and to understand the specifics of the work you’re managing.
If you aren’t sure whether or not you have the leadership for the positions named above, then it might be worth looking at opportunities to rise up in your current place of work or to look at leading local non-profit and community initiatives. I learned to develop many of my leadership skills working in young professional organizations and it was a great place to learn without the pressures of losing a job if I messed up.
