Aprill 8: Leadership is Influence

Effective leadership is getting people to perform a task or behave in a desired way through your positive influence. Effective means the follower wants to perform and will likely continue to follow your lead long term.

Of course there are shortcuts to getting people to do what you want, but shortcuts often lead to rebellion and sabotage.

What kind of leader are you? Are you effective long term? Do your people follow you because of your influence or because of your threats?
