Influence is better than authority

It can be said that leaders have both influence and authority.
Authority-the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience.
Influence-the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone.

Be intentional about exercising your influence far more often than your authority. Great leaders build people not just accomplish goals.
