Kenneth Blanchard said “The key to successful leadership is influence, not authority.” I love this. I've worked for great leaders and weak leaders. The great leaders were people who inspired others and made a positive influence in their life. They were people you wanted to be like. People you wanted to make happy because you respected them. The weak leaders were quite the opposite. They held their position over everyone. The ruled with an iron-fist and made sure everyone knew they were the boss. They inspired very few, but often got results because people were afraid to get on their wrong side. If you can, be an inspirational leader!
