He preferred I say I have a “success list” or some other derivative of the same. Surprised that he would be somewhat argumentative about my system there on my newsfeed, I inquired a bit more.

Only if we lose our words.

Leadership is Influence

Written on September 25, 2012 at 11:18 am

I was watching the news this morning as the anchors were discussing the various politicians and past presidents who had the keen ability to “influence” world leaders and thereby shape foreign policy.

As I listened, it occurred to me that the key to any type of leadership is the ability to influence others. Political or otherwise.

It also occurred to me that some people have a natural ability to influence while others have to work harder at it.
