"I naturally take on a leader and mentor-ship type of role with my co-workers. In one instance, I had a new coworker who was having some trouble fitting in. I took her out for lunch and talked to her about the workplace culture and semantics surrounding the various departments. I wanted her to stay and enjoy her employment with us, so I took the responsibility of ensuring she was settling in well. I believe there are always opportunities for leadership - you have to keep your eyes open!"
"I aim always to demonstrate my leadership abilities every day, even though I am a junior administrator. I strive to set a good example for my peers by performing my tasks quickly, without having to be told. I will also take charge when I see a task falling behind, which I believe is a good example of leadership."
"I have been in a leadership role for most of my career. As a result, the actions of a true leader are now naturally ingrained in me. Every year I re-read Simon Sinek's book, 'Leaders Eat Last,' which has ingrained in me a foundation of leadership based on inspiration and creating a remarkable team environment. I am leading by example in all that I do, inside and outside of work."
"I demonstrate leadership ability daily by effectively managing my projects and clients independently. This display of accountability is a good example to others, and it shows my leadership team that I can take the lead on a project without having to be encouraged by outside sources to perform."
"I choose to lead by example, with or without any managerial authority presence. I arrive early to work and stay late when needed. I pitch in and go the extra mile whenever an opportunity presents itself. I feel this approach makes me a good teammate and a good human. This eager attitude also sets me up for a strong career trajectory. When the opportunity for a true leadership role presents itself, I have positioned myself to be top of mind for the promotion."
"I want to be taken seriously as a business person and sales leader, so I must always lead by example. I never know who is watching! Leading by example applies to my time in the office, my activity on social media, or my actions at a company event. No matter what the situation or where I find myself, to be a true leader, I believe in acting like someone is always observing my actions."
"As an elementary school teacher in a small town, I have to be very aware of my actions at all times. At work, while volunteering, grocery shopping, or going for a couple of drinks - I have my leadership hat on by acting as a positive influence."
"Just last month I was asked to lead a shift when my superior officer was unexpectedly away. I took charge for two days, and the experience was quite positive. I believe the biggest success factor was that I tried to emulate his leadership style and did ask his help when I wasn't sure what to do. I feel this experience prepared me for a leadership role. I am excited to take on a team lead role again."
"Having been in a leadership role for the past 20 years of my career, I try to show my actions as a leader at work, and outside of work as well."
Again, the right thoughts are definitely there but I do recommend working on completing the thought or concept.
"I have demonstrated leadership qualities for the past 20 years, as I make sure to act as a good example inside and outside of work."

"Leadership is about influence, so you do not have to be in a formal leadership role."
While you make a great point, be sure to speak for yourself rather than in generalities.
"I believe that Leadership pertains to group influence, which is a trait that does not require formal leadership. I consider myself a positive influencer in any work group, thus making me a consistent leader. I lead by example with the intention of adding to a positive and productive work culture."
