In this episode John and Laura discuss the fact that leadership is much more about interpersonal influence than about the position held in the organization. They break down a 2 x 2 diagram that shows the impact of moving from the lower left quadrant where one has no position and no influence to the upper right quadrant where one holds both position and influence. Those in the upper right quadrant (high influence and position) are able to build up the organization, lead the people well and God is honored and glorified. Below listeners can access John’s paper on Lifestyle Leadership that further explains the need for influence and how to gain it by growth in character, competence and commitment.
