We have the opportunity to be leaders within faith-based organizations, or a non-profit that serves a specific community close to your heart, or as a volunteer with a mentorship program. Authentic leadership is not in the title or the position. It is an aspect of who you are as a person. It is in connecting and serving with others. Don’t let the rhetoric of leadership commonly found on the way to Election Day define you. Let authentic leadership be your guide.
