We all influencers others. Except in the rarest of cases most of us desire that our influence has some sort of positive outcomes connected to it.
While we don't have to possess a "title" to influence others, those in recognized leadership positions are afforded disproportional opportunities to affect positive outcomes, and vibes.
There are some concrete things we can do to make ourselves and the organizations we lead move toward betterness:
- Focus on the best in others
- Shift the focus from blaming toward collective resolution
- Build bridges, not walls
- Assist with the work, don't take over the work
- Recognize, acknowledge, and model servant leadership
