Leadership is influence

It’s often been said that leadership is influence – it’s the impact you are having on the people around you and therefore the effect on the team, group, community, or family/household that you are part of.

Nothing about this requires any ‘official’ leadership position for you to exercise influence where you are. In fact, you are constantly influencing your environment all the time – it’s just a case of whether your contribution is positive or negative.

It’s amazing to see the powerful effect upon others of those who are positive, encouraging, generous and servant-hearted…and equally noteworthy is the response such people get in return.

The commitment to be a positive presence wherever they go is something that clearly marks out the best leaders.
