Leadership

The following is from John C. Maxwell.

Leadership is influence.

Leadership is the ability to obtain followers.

Everyone influences someone.

Sociologists tell us that even the most introverted individual will influence ten thousand other people during his or her lifetime.

What kind of influencer will you be?

The boss drives his workers; the leader coaches them.

The boss depends upon authority; the leader on goodwill.

The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm.

The boss says “I”; the leader says “We”.

The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown.

The boss knows how it’s done; the leader shows how.

The boss says “Go”; the leader says “Let’s go”.
