True leaders do not wait to see if anyone else is going to step up when there is a task to be done. They are first to raise their hands. They take initiative. We see this of Prophet Isaiah in our opening text today as he rose to the occasion when God called him.
Taking initiative means being proactive and taking action to identify and address opportunities, and challenges that arise within a team or organization. It involves being creative, resourceful, and decisive in determining the best course of action to achieve the team’s goals and objectives.
A person of initiative demonstrates the willingness to take calculated risks and embrace change, providing the people they lead with the support and resources needed to take on new challenges and explore new opportunities.
Thus, whether it is in a family, a team or an organization, you too can begin to demonstrate this leadership capability in you by learning to take responsibility and be accountable for what has been committed into your trust, proactively solving problems and owning the outcomes of your decisions.
Therefore, be proactive with your assignment today by looking out for ways to improve and being decisive to voice out your ideas, and implement them when the opportunity presents itself. This is a sure way to favour and promotion.
