Leadership isn’t about your position. It’s about your influence.
Every person who has been within a workplace, sporting team and even a school yard knows the impact of influence that comes with the rolls of leadership. Either the strengths or lack of influence is very easy to observe, with some people it is natural and some it can be developed. Even a employee with much influence can sway a company more than a CEO with no influence, I have many times observed leaders in all types of rolls and all types of positions within companies change even the vision and direction overpowering the ones in the top positions.
From the confident but friendly cleaner voicing his opinion to the director of a company in such a way that it gets the directors brain moving and therefore making directional changes with a company from even such ideas from the office cleaner. So remember that Leadership isn’t about position its about influence. You can change much if you lead with influence no matter what you position.
