Learn traits you can cultivate within yourself so others view you as a leader.  Leadership excels when others feel empowered to follow a direction, which includes listening to feedback, ideas and concerns.  Learn how to be an active, attentive and reflective listener using all senses so others will follow you to help you become a stronger leader.
