For some people, stepping into a leadership role is natural; they instantly step forward, and others instinctively follow. For others, leadership does not come as naturally. Leadership is a terrific quality to have, and it is perfectly okay if you struggle with developing your leadership ability. Past trauma can affect you when taking on a leadership role; you may feel as if you are not qualified, that there is someone better for the position, or that you simply are not good enough to hold such a title. Trauma is powerful. Working through those underlying issues will help you to harness your leadership power to its fullest. Here are a few tips to get you started. 


Learn Your Leadership Style


We are all unique, so naturally, we all have unique leadership styles. Try to think about what type of leader you want to be. What kind of leader do you respond best to? When you have a picture in your mind of what you want to accomplish, you can determine the steps needed to get there. 


Explore Your Fear


Why does being a leader make you nervous or uncomfortable? Is it because of low self-esteem? Does your fear cause you to question your qualifications? Fear is sometimes a good thing. However, when it begins to impact daily life, it may be time to start asking whether the fear you feel is productive or not. 


Be Passionate


Jump into your passions at full speed. Teach others why you feel so passionate and why you want to teach others. When you acknowledge and embrace your passion, many leadership qualities will naturally rise to the surface. 


Find Comfort in Your Discomfort


Growth is uncomfortable. However, when you step outside of your comfort zone, you can learn so much about yourself. Focus on your goals and where you want to see yourself. Find comfort in knowing that you are pushing yourself to be better and more productive. 


We all find and develop leadership skills differently. For some, it is natural and easy; for others, developing leadership skills takes effort and determination. If you struggle with past trauma, mental health issues, or addiction, you may find it challenging to find and cultivate leadership skills. If you are passionate about something, keep pushing forward, and you will find those leadership skills. Here at The Guest House, our mission is to work with people to find the right skills and tools to face their challenges and accomplish their goals.
