Impacting Through Influence

I am sure you all have come across numerous books, courses, and essays that talk about leadership. The one evident thing that came out from all these sources is that leadership has got nothing to do with titles.
Having a C-level title might make you a good manager but doesn’t necessarily make you a great leader.
For instance, if you are in a managerial position and are guiding your team towards successfully achieving their designated targets, you might be regarded as a good manager. But, if you encourage your team to go above and beyond, not only to complete their targets but also to transcend beyond their capabilities, then you will be known as a sound leader.
I believe that you don’t need any title to lead. If you are walking along with your team and if they are looking up to you and trusting you to guide them towards their desired goals, you have marked yourself as a great leader.
Undoubtedly, the definition of leadership has evolved through the ages. The approach and mindset that used to work earlier won’t be effective in today’s modern world.
Today, influence is the key ingredient that separates successful leaders from the herd.
Why do people see leaders such as Elon Musk, Sundar Pichai, Jeff Bezos, etc., as their role models? Because they lead by example. They created a picture of what is possible. It is certainly their influence, actions, and achievements that inspire others to take an untraveled road and create a landmark of their own.
Influential leadership is all about making people believe in you by gaining their confidence and trust. It ultimately creates a culture where everyone is motivated to bring their best to the table.
