Every leader has capacity to grow and develop their leadership.  This is what we would call potential.  Potential is having or showing the capacity to become or develop into something in the future.

The success of your leadership is dependent on your ability to reach your full potential.  

There are some people who strive to live up to the expectations or potential of others.  But the best way to obtain your success is by developing your own strengths and by being yourself.  Here are two ways to reach your full potential.

1.    Discover Competencies

Whether it is you or your organization, it is important to determine the most important competencies.  There are varying levels of competency from motivation to communication to curiosity to insight to engagement to determination to teamwork to strategic planning.

You have to determine what competencies are great fits and are needed for your success.  Knowledge and understanding of your competencies will sharpen your leadership productivity and performance.

2.    Map Potential Opportunities

Once you know the competencies that fit you or your organization, then it is important to actually create a map to show all your opportunities to reach your full potential.

After you map out a growth map, you will find several ways to take advantage of potential opportunities.  You will then need to do what you said you would do on your growth map.

Believe it or not, you have room to grow.  You have capacity to be a better leader.  More importantly, you have ability to transform by reaching your full potential.
