Why are leadership skills important?

Being in a leadership role comes with responsibility.  When we feel pushed into a leadership role without the skills and support required, it can erode our existing skill-set and our confidence as a leader.  By developing personal insights and strategies for effective leadership, we can learn to feel more competent and at ease in the leadership position, helping ourselves and colleagues to thrive.
