12 Attributes of a Great Leader: #5 Engagement and Influence

"Great leaders are relaxed when the team is stressed, and stressed when the team is relaxed."

I had a chance to talk with Jerome Selva about Engagement and Influence recently.

Podcast here.

We discuss:

- Informal Influence
- Getting comfortable in your own skin
- Tools for informal influence (blogs, videos, etc.)
- Looking outside your defined scope
- Emotional intelligence

In addition, Jerome shared the following for further reading:
