“Leadership is influence, nothing more nothing less”. John C. Maxwell
Having the right understanding of leadership will shape your leadership journey. Many think that leadership is a position, hence they are waiting to attain a certain position before they start leading. Others believe their leadership is in their title. Such people get disappointed when people refuse to follow them once their title changes. If your leadership is solely dependant on your position or title, you may not go far. But if you develop personal influence with people, with or without a title or position, your leadership will grow.
Who are you influencing today? What steps do you need to take today to increase your influence with people? Remember, influence can be positive or negative. Opt to be a positive influence today.
