By definition, leaders cannot wait. If they do, they are not leaders, but merely followers. I think initiative takes a little bit of faith bathed in risk.
Effectively dealing with professional and personal difficulties creates influence.
Those who influence the influencers, are those who influence those who have influence. In other words, to lead leaders, you must influence those who lead others. Do what you do well and lead those you lead with conviction and passion and you will find yourself leading leaders.
