7 Simple Ways to Be a Positive Influence As a Leader

Do you ever wonder what other people think of you? One of my greatest sayings is “People tell you who they are” This is so true in day to day interactions.

(From the article): Being glad for others for most of us is quite easy.  It’s great to see people doing well.  Showing you’re glad means actively helping them to celebrate their successes.  When someone gets that qualification or loses that 6lb, find a way to help them celebrate.  Buy a bunch of flowers or send that card, or take the time to drop an email, pop your head round the door and tell them “Well done”.  Too often in our fast paced lives, even though we may be glad for others, we fall short of showing we are.

donhornsby's curator insight, January 20, 2013 9:13 AM

(From the article): Books and articles about leadership tend to focus on decisions, not questions. That’s because readers prefer clean narrative arcs and a relatively small cast of characters. We like to see leaders struggle a bit with adversity, but then rally the troops to victory. We value resolve and pride in leaders more than curiosity and selflessness.

 

When leaders ask others not only for their input, but to make their own decisions and accept responsibility, it doesn’t make for as good a story. The reasons for success are harder to pin down, the heroes spread throughout the organization. But which leader would you rather work for–the one who makes all the decisions or the one who trusts you to do your job, take risks, and learn?
