Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live.Anne Sweeney
Everyone in life is a free agent. You are a leader who can sell your strengths and services to or within an organization. With technology and other tools you can choose to be on-site or off site to provide those services. The key is that you are in charge of your own personal leadership vision. You are accountable for your authentic presence as a leader. You set the rules of engagement that support your model of success. From your own personal vantage point, your day-to-day engagement with the world around you is less about climbing the ladder of the corporate mindset and more about how to walk in your own soul.
Leadership has less to do with how far up a corporate ladder you can climb, and more to do with how far you can walk in your own soul.TandemSpring

Cycles of Success to Becoming You
Many people feel that the journey to defining their own model of leadership requires that they to do more. In reality, it is quite the opposite. It requires you to stop doing more (of what everyone else wants) and to give more of yourself, and to yourself, in all that you do. Consider what you would stop doing because it does not fit your model of success. Ask yourself if what you are doing is because it is aligned with your vision or if it is because of what someone else expects of you. What would you be doing if your life was centered on your authentic presence as a leader?
True leadership is not about doing more, rather it is about bringing more of you to what you do.TandemSpring
