Tuesday Tidbit

Most of us are familiar with the John Maxwell quote that states, “All leadership is influence.” While doing some research this weekend, I came across this quote posted on leadershipnow.com:

“Leadership is intentional influence.”

That one word, intentional, makes a big difference. It tells us that we need to be consciously aware of the impact of our words, actions, direction, vision and inspiration. Leaders aren’t reactive, they are proactive. There is a reason for every word and deed. They are intentional in all things.

Yes, all leadership is influence. Let’s take up the additional challenge and be intentional about that influence.

Tuesday Tidbits are weekly messages I send to my leadership team. They are generally short & sweet, often focused on leadership or teamwork, always positive and, hopefully, motivational. I hope you also find some meaning in them.
