Phil Gaines returns to the show to talk about the role of influence in leadership.
As leaders, it’s important to be mindful of voice and presence. In a day and age when what you say is magnified through technology and social media, knowing the impacts of reputation is key. For instance, if people naturally flock to you for vision and direction, chances are you’re building a healthy reputation among those you serve. Contrarily, if what you say lacks consistency and/or morale, your voice will suffer and hinder your influence.
As Gaines points out, a good leader is mindful not only of his title and position, but the effects they have on a group. By knowing what to be present at and how to engage from all distances, a leader can ultimately mature his influence, reputation, and confidence.
