The Emperor: Direct Your Power

The card of the day is the EMPEROR.

You might be holding the world in the palm of your hands, but do you know what to do with it? The presence of this card tells me that you do know, or that you want to find out. In my mind, the Emperor is boss and he got to his position of power by taking a series of small organized steps that supported his mission and he used every opportunity that was presented to him. If I were to generate a list of attributes that capable leaders have I would include: organization, the ability to focus ideas and implement a plan of action, effective communication, charisma, and strength.

What attributes do you think a capable leader should have? Take a moment and write done 5 skills that you think are necessary for people who are in a position of power.

Your assignment: Choose someone in your environment who has a leadership style that you want to model and apply the skills you see in practice to your own life.

If you haven’t done so already, leave a comment! We would love to know what skills you think a capable leader should have. If you are taking on a leadership position in your own life – what is it and where did you begin?
