I have readers who lead and readers who follow. Some are managers, some are leadership gurus, some are employees. You do not need to be a leader to be aware of your own influence. Remember there is an action and a reaction. What you do will be evaluated by people around you. How you act will be judged by the people around you. How can you contribute to a great workplace? What do you do to make your co-workers grow? Are you polite? Your influence is more than just a leverage to get your way. Think about how you can be a positive influence at work.
