Guest: Barry Smith, Leadership by Invitation; How to RSVP and Embrace Your Role as a Leader (www.buildingwhatmatters.com)
LEADERSHIP BY INVITATION
Your Role as a Leader will take you on a journey of understanding that you can’t live the life you were designed to live without accepting to invite to lead. The short version is that you are not a leader you’re a follower. Followers allow others to make decisions for them, control the things they do, how they do them, where they do them, and who they do them with. . . . . (excerpt from the book).
