Leadership and Influence

They say that leaders are born, not made. While it is true that some people are born leaders, the others can learn to become one! Clearly, leadership potential exists within each of us. That potential can be triggered by outside events, or it can be learned by exploring ourselves from within.

This training takes the latter approach. It is never easy to take the lead, as you will need to make decisions and face challenges, but it can become natural and rewarding. Leadership is not telling others what to do. Leadership is inspiring others to do what needs to be done. Genuine leaders take a stand and motivate others to join them in a noble purpose.

Once you learn the techniques of true leadership, you will be able to build the confidence it takes to take the lead and the more experience you have acting as a genuine leader, the easier it will be for you.Influence is subtle, yet incredibly powerful. You can order someone to do a task, but you cannot order them to do their best. It simply does not work and usually has the opposite effect. You can influence people to do their best by providing a h5, motivating example in addition to positive reinforcement. Leadership addresses tasks, while influence addresses attitudes and awareness. Influence is the soul of leadership.With this course you will learn what true leadership is and how to become an influent leader.
