Maximising Your Leadership Potential

Leadership Potential is your key to maximizing your potentials!

To fulfill your leadership potentials, you must believe that you are inherently a leader. Leadership really comes down to two things; who you are and how you think.

It is about discovering your identity as a born leader and then understanding the way true leaders think so that you can fulfill your inherent calling. If you don't first establish your leadership nature, it will be very difficult to fulfill your potential.

True leadership is concerned with who you are, as opposed to what you do. Leadership actions flow naturally from a personal leadership revelation. To exercise leadership, you must believe that you are inherently a leader. That's a discovery of your leadership potential.

To discover your leadership, you must first discover your purpose. To pursue purpose as leaders do, you must think like a leader, you must receive the thoughts of leadership; you must have a personal encounter with your true self, a discovery of your nature, ability and essence as a human being. Just as a product cannot know its true purpose or worth except in its relationship with its manufacturer, so it’s with you and me.

Keys To Maximizing Your Leadership Potential

Discovering who you were created to be starts a chain reaction towards fulfilling your potentials. When you uncover a sense of meaning for your life, you become aware of your unique identity as a human being. When you discover your reason for living, it produces confidence which ignites a conviction in your ability to achieve your dreams; you gain a sense of destiny.

  • Recognize the source of Purpose

Every human being was created by God. You must recognize that we have been made in his image and likenesses i.e. to be and function like God each of us are here to reveal a unique personality of God.

  • Discover you are purpose built

Your eyes see, your ear hear, your nose smell. Everything in our body has a reason for existence. Therefore you exist for a purpose. You were designed and finished with all the ability you could ever need to accomplish your life's dream.

  • You were born to deliver something to humanity

Man created the car to make transportation easier, then how much more the creator of the car?

You came here with something that humanity needs, something that brings development and improvement to human life.

  • The challenges and problems around you.

Someone rightly said that "problems gravitate to its solution" i.e. you cannot find a car on the water or a boat on the road.

Sometimes discovering purpose lies in the problems we face or around us. Leaders were ordinary people who were placed or found themselves under extraordinary, difficult circumstances that brought out their potential, producing character that inspires confidence and trust of others.

  • Discover your gifts

God created each person with a unique and inherent gifts, abilities and talents that increase our leadership effectiveness. When you discover your life assignment, you can direct your gifts and talents into the development and improvement of humanity.

  • What do you stand for

What do you stand for as person, organization or company? Someone rightly said when you know the why for living, you can face anything. It is your reason for doing what you do, that births passion in your followers. When your reason for doing what you do is convincing, people won't follow you.

  • What are you passionate about

Passion is a great indicator for purpose. Apostle Paul wrote the vast majority of the New Testament, Michael Jordan has passion for sports; Michael Jackson was passion about music. Passion brings a strong emotional response, either positively or negatively.

  • Invest in Your Personality.

When a leader discovers his purpose and begins the journey of fulfilling it, he begins the process of developing his skills, attitude, and communication, knowledge in your area of gifting or area of specialty. You can only lead to the degree of your ability, skills and where you have gone.

  • Discipline Yourself

Leaders pose a deep dedication to personal discipline. Leadership focuses on self-sacrifice for the sake of service, rather than personal pleasure. Vision has inherent principles and values that need to be adhered to for vision to be fulfilled. 


Fulfilling your leadership potentials is possible. Discovering your purpose is the foundation of leadership. Men and women can be leaders in their homes, business, department, organization or community. It all begins with a commitment to fulfilling your purpose.
