You are standing on a river bank. The water is still and calm. There is no wind. You take a rock, throw it high in the air and it lands in the middle with a loud plop.
This single action results in a series of ripples radiating out from where the rock entered the water. They continue to travel outwards, changing the surface of the water, influencing the surroundings.
One simple action resulting in significant influence.
Leading is about influence.
Who are you changing by your actions? Your work mates? Your friends? Members of your family?
Who is feeling the ripples of your influence?
If the answer is no one, perhaps it’s time to increase your leadership capability?
