Leadership From Within
People and organizations are continuously on the lookout for ‘leaders.’
A leader is someone who guides and leads people towards a certain goal.
Leadership is the ability or process of inducing social influence in order to achieve objectives. Interestingly, leadership is a highly researched area and it’s a sought after practical skill that few individuals possess. Even less, act upon it.
A leader has the ability to inspire, motivate and give ownership to his or her followers.
Leading from within is the ability to lead with courage and from the heart, this type of leader wants more for their followers than they would themselves. They have a high level of respect and value for every team member, they lead by example, and this is difference between true leadership and positional authority- the usual management.
Seminar on ‘Leading From Within’
Leadership has less to do with seniority and more about your values and beliefs.
Leaders have thick skins, they do not bother with title-war. Many times they can be wrong but they have the ability listen and inspire. Crucial characteristics.
Management and leadership are different from one another, remember that a manager can only manage people and resources, whereas a leader can influence people to do more from the heart. That is, treating the task at hand like its personal.
They focus a lot on motivation and giving clear directions.
So, if you wish to lead from within (and have your people do the same), you have to first identify your own weaknesses and strengths, be willing to continuously learn and improve, using your experience to educate others, and be open to the ideas and suggestions of your followers.

How to Lead From Within?
We have found the following characteristics to be vital for someone wanting to become a true leader:
Leading by Example with Honesty: A boss tells you what to do and as a leader you will have to ‘show’ your team how and what to do. People love giving instructions but only a leader has the integrity to actually do the job first in order to experience the challenges involved, then he or she will teach and inspire the team to do that specific job. A genuine leader is always sensitive to other’s feelings, they make people feel special and valued, and treat them how they would like to be treated, with utmost respect.
As an expert Leadership speaker, Kevin Abdulrahman can teach your people how to develop the courage to take control before asking others, he will also teach you unique mental techniques that will enable you to push beyond what you initially thought were your limits.
Communication and Confidence: Both traits go hand in hand, confidence and commanding communication skills are a must. As a leader you have to be confident all the time, especially during rough patches, if you loose hope then your team will be lost.
