Influence vs Authority

Influence

This is definitely one principle that we really have to assess and understand both as followers and as leaders ourselves.

Do we understand the difference of influential and authoritative?

As followers, let’s look at people who have authority over us. Do we allow them to influence us or do they just exist as autocratic authority figures? Are there strong influencers in our lives who are not necessarily in a position of authority? What is it about them that has an impact in our lives?

As leaders, do we exercise our authority in order to influence others? Or do we influence others (hopefully positively) even without necessarily being in a position over them? Do we focus on authority? Do we live as a positive influence over others? Do we understand how much influence we can make on other people?

Having a clear picture of our influence and authority over other people can really improve our leadership towards a more effective and more authentic one.

I would give talents and skills and inexplicable genius to little babies because I really wish people were a little more intelligent. If I could, I would make every Filipino hold a master’s degree. That’s how much I wish people were a little more educated.
