I have never been officially labelled as a leader. but i have led and still lead today.
i have led myself, with my determination and free will.
i lead others by guiding, coaching and directing.
i lead by example, by going first and sharing my knowledge and experience and showing others that the (once) unimaginable is now possible.
one form of leadership is taking initiative.
organisations who have goals and are up to stuff love people who take initiative. they are grateful for it.
i definitely took initiative to create events at work that improved the business, contributed to communities and connected people in a positive way. i wanted to make my environment better and feel good about my ability to make a difference. this makes the company look good. this adds value to your worth as well as the workplace.
you will take pride in making it happen. your leader will take pride in having a great team member. and... people you never knew existed will know your name.
when you create a great reputation and demonstrate your leadership qualities now, people won't need you to prove it in your job application tomorrow, they will already know, which makes their decision to hire you muchhhhh easier and more efficient. you will have the upper hand against other random candidates.
you may think "i'm not paid enough to do more", but consider your pre-work as an investment and the promotion as the dividends.
i know that is part of how i acquired my last promotion.
The fifth saree as part of #8sareeapril is this handwoven khesh inspired by the jamuns we all grew up gorging in summers! 😋 i am personally not a great fan of them since i don't like the dried up feeling in my mouth after eating one! but then 'paal sarbath' which had a jamun essence along with milk and almond gum came to my rescue to satiate my jamun cravings 😄 .
i have worn the same khesh sari with kalamkari and printed blouses before; this time paired it with my another favorite green sambalpuri ikat blouse! swipe left to see all 3 avatars 👈🏼 i would have worn this green blouse a dozen times too!
since i wanted to highlight the green, chose to accessorize with simple jhumkas and tibetan jewelry! 🙂
