Toastmasters: Your first year as a leader: Stretch your comfort zone

Leadership is an elusive skill. Libraries and MBA programs are crammed full of leadership and management theories, that are difficult to apply in your day job. Young leaders today are facing a dual challenge. Firstly, after scrambling through a competitive education system to reach the workplace they are faced with the demoralising thought that much of their formal education is ill-suited to the rigours of company life. Secondly, in a swirling competitive global market they need to upgrade their soft skills – including leadership – so that they are ready to capture the opportunities that are available for people with a keen sense of learning and getting ahead.
