Influence is at the heart of leadership. Our actions should inspire and influence our tribe to become better. To do more. To be more.
However, we sometimes do things that make us lose our influence as leaders.
Be on guard for the actions that will make your leadership less effective and for you to lose your influence over your tribe. Your influence is valuable and it’s key to being a leader.
As you’re leading, take care to not lose your influence.
Have a Do as I say, not as I do attitude: Our actions speak louder than words. When we expect others to do as we say but not as we do, our tribe begins to notice.
Those once great followers will soon turn away. They’ll realize you’re all talk, no action. Don’t let your actions tell your tribe you’re not a leader.
