Many people incorrectly believe leadership is a place, a position or a title. The truth is that leadership is influence. Nothing more. Nothing Less. You don’t have to possess a position at the top of your group, department, division or organization in order to lead; whenever your life connects with another person, you exert influence. Everything you do– at work, at home or at play—has an impact on the lives around you. No matter what your leadership goals are, you can achieve them faster, you can be more effective and the contribution you make can be longer lasting if you learn to develop your influence.
