Modern age businesses seem to be dominating the business world at the minute.

When you’re a team leader, it can be very tempting to have your team around you all day, every day. Yes, you want to supervise the workload and ensure that projects and tasks are kept up to date but you also want your team to know that you’re on their side and always there for them when they have questions and queries.

- High impact
- Low impact
My guess is that you are like me – you want to influence and impact others in a positive way AND in the most potent way possible.
That begs the question… as a leader, how can you increase your level of positive impact on others?
