A few different camps on this one.
One thought is leadership is leadership regardless of the
situation. Leading a curriculum team, assessment team, coach,
activity sponsor and etc. All these demonstrate leadership and
should be noted as such on a resume, application and interview
Another is leadership is situational and specific skill sets
are developed based upon the particulars of the job.
A blend of these two is striking that right balance for the
expectations of the employer and needs of the organization.
There are skill sets that umbrella any situation. Life
experiences and soft skills interact with the job role to lead
you to decisions. The more decisions/solutions one makes in a
particular situation builds the tool kit for future actions.
You need to know the expectations for the job, which specific
skill sets would need to be developed and those to draw upon.
Things like reports or actions targeted to that particular job
would be a learning curve versus someone who had done them
before. You maybe ready for a particular leadership position;
however, you may not have done certain aspects of the position.
Employers will determine what components are must have
experiences versus to be learned.
As for the question of what positions held, I followed
sequential leadership positions to central office. Each person
and situation is difference based upon the circumstances.
