I’m sure you all would agree with me that the world we live in today is very different to the world we knew 40, 30, even 20 years ago. The world has changed in so many ways – there have been a vast amount of technological advancements happening every day, in all spheres of life and it is quite remarkable to watch it all unfold.
The business world is no different.
Our businesses cannot be run the way they were 40, 30, even 20 years ago. The era we live in today calls for a new type of leader, not a boss but a leader, and yes there is a HUGE difference.
To illustrate the differences I have come up with this nifty little table:
Remember, “Leadership is the ability to influence others to work towards a common purpose”.
Your ability to influence is not dependent on your title or your role in your organization, it is dependent on your character, who you are as a person. If you can LEAD others and not boss them around you will find you won’t just influence those in your business but also everyone around you.
True leadership, my friends, comes from the heart. Always remember this.
