The call to lead | SmartBlogs SmartBlogs.

A great piece on when to decide to heed the call to take a leadership position including the very honest reflection that often your first answer will be a huge “no” because of the demands it may represent.

The author lists four elements to consider as you decide about taking a leadership position.  These  resonated with me in my experience to seek the position of middle manager champion in my Department.

I can see returning to this list again for help in making crucial decisions on adding new leadership roles to my plate.

The mission is aligned with your head and heart.

You are the right person at the right time.

You see a better future. 

After thinking it over, you know it’s the right thing to do.
