A good understanding of the principles of leadership will be useful to you whether you see yourself as a leader or primarily as a follower in your organization. It will help you look to leadership from an organizational lens and develop understanding of versatile leadership for performance.

- Determine the best way to gain and pass on leadership skills
- Interact with other leaders with increased confidence and assurance
- Respond successfully as a follower
- Recognize effective and ineffective leadership in others
