Best-selling author, time management expert, work life balance specialist and professional speaker Susan Sly reveals how to step up when you are put into a leadership role, even if you are not a born leader.

Brockville, Ontario — October 24, 2016 — Best-selling author, work life balance speaker and expert, and entrepreneur Susan Sly recently published a new article, “When You’re Not a Born Leader But You Have to Do It Anyway.” In the article, Sly asks, “What if you don’t feel like you were born with leadership qualities and don’t know how to be a leader but you are thrust into a leadership position anyway?”

She adds, “Or maybe you have great entrepreneurial instincts and skills so you have this business that is taking off…. Yet, to take it to the next level, you must learn how to be a leader to your team.”

Susan then addresses whether or not it’s possible to develop leadership skills and if so, can you do it on your own?

One alternative to tackling this problem solo, she offers, is to work with a life coach or success coach to develop your leadership skills and become a better leader.

She then gives four simple steps that most coaches will help you to take, to get started on the road to being a better leader.
