Leaders Say “Yes!”

Some people question, whether leadership comes from a yes or a no. I believe that leadership comes from a yes. I say this because when we say yes, we are often taking the initiative to commit to something. We are finding the courage to take on a responsibility that we do not necessarily have too. Saying yes expresses that you are willing to serve and work to accomplish something. It shows that you are to afraid to fail, regardless of the circumstances. Many great figures throughout history have proven that being a yes leader is often the most effective leadership style. Cesar Chavez, for example, was a yes leader. He was an american labor leader and civil rights activist who co-founded the National Farm Workers Association. Cesar Chavez also coined the term “Si Se Puede,” which means “yes we can.” This phrase is a symbol of his success and level of equality he brought to the LatinX community. It is now an integral part of Latino social movements throughout the country. This is a prime example of how being a yes leader can be effective, and there are many other yes leaders in history who have changed the world for the better. So the next time you find yourself wondering, does leadership come from a yes or a no, remember: “Si Se Puede!”
