Everything rises and falls on influence. Nothing will impact your professional and personal life more than your ability to influence others.
Authentic influence is developed daily, not in a day.
Leadership is one of the most incredibly simple, and at the same time, profoundly complex, concepts. It’s simple because leadership is nothing more than influence. It’s complex because why, how, when, where, and who you are influencing is based on the dynamic principles of influencing other people.
Not only is leadership complex and dynamic, there is often a lot of confusion about the differences between management and leadership.
Management is about managing work, things, and processes. Management is absolutely needed and is critical to achieving business goals and developing professional competency. Things and processes don’t have feelings, emotions, or opinions. They should be, and must be, managed. People, team members and employees, do have feelings, emotions, and opinions and should be led.
