Taking responsibility is something different than taking control. What needs to happen that isn't happening? What action can we take now? What questions aren't being asked? Who will take ownership of a problem or issue (even if it is just picking up a piece of litter) and commit to making the needed change happen? And when things go wrong, who focuses not on the blame but on the lesson and finding the path to keep moving forward?
The thing you really need in order to lead- trust- can't just be given to you; you cultivate through your actions. Taking opportunities, taking initiative, and above all taking responsibility.
