Influence is the new buzz word around leadership but is it really new. It set me thinking the first name that came in mind was Mahtama Gandhi – A person without a control over people influences a whole country to follow him to freedom. The construct illiterate, orthodox, segmented thoughts and the list goes on…
Then it reminded that ages back Ram the Hindu God single handedly was able to mobilize a whole army of unknown place to help him go and fight across the ocean and finally emerge as a victor.
so while being definitely an important trait the word is new the skill present since ages. I leave you with a thought.
Influence to create a chain reaction to success
