Supporter, leader, or both is a choice many are faced with when deciding upon a career path and the position they can see themselves filling. However, as a fitness professional, I believe the moment one decides to work in this industry, you sign up for both. Let’s think about it. Whether it be a dietician, personal trainer, group fitness instructor, or athletic training coach, it requires the person to support, motivate, and demonstrate what it is they are asking their clients to practice.
As a certified fitness professional, with over 8 years of experience, I firmly see my position with my clients, community, and colleagues as one of their leaders. Therefore, I actively seek to cultivate my leadership skills and have 9 attributes that I believe it’s important for me to house. I also would like to encourage other leaders to welcome/ acquire these traits. The traits are listed below.
C’Yo’s 9 most important Leadership Attributes:
1. Set an example
2. Seek growth
3. Be humble
4. Have courage
5. Be passionate
6. Possess benevolence
7. Have integrity
8. Practice empathy
In addition to me being intentional about leading, I fuel myself daily with my personal mantra: “Me + We = US.” It’s with that belief that I am able to honor what I consider my social responsibility and that’s to make a positive contribution that will help shape the experience of humanity.
