Leadership is more than having influence over others. To be an effective leader, you must positively influence your team and the others around you.“The good news is that even if you don’t recognize yourself as an influencer, it’s a skill you can develop over time,” said Marc Staut in the November/December issue of CPA Voice.
Staut said developing influence means working across silos, being proactive, seeking out feedback and more. He also said it’s crucial to celebrate the big and small milestones.
“People crave recognition,” he said. “So, celebrating wins helps build confidence, leading to great things.”
