THE FOUR PILLARS
Leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less
Everything rises and falls on leadership
Leadership can be taught
The three stages of leadership:
Learn it
Live it
Lead it
THE LAW OF LEGACY
A leader’s
lasting value is
measured by
succession
“A life isn’t
significant except
for its impact on
other lives.”
• Gain a better
understanding of
influence
• Learn how to
increase your
influence with others
WHO DO I INFLUENCE?
Principle
As a leader, I
attract who I am,
not who I want.
DO I INFLUENCE…
Leaders or followers
Thinkers or Doers
Positive or Negative
Insecure or Secure
Successful or Unsuccessful
Givers or Takers
Eagles or Turkeys
HOW DO I INFLUENCE OTHERS?
Principle
How I influence people will determine how
many, how long, and how effectively I
influence them.
METHODS OF INFLUENCE
Force – no choice in the decision
Intimidation – “My way or the highway”
Manipulation – There’s a winner and a
loser
Positional – We follow because we have to
Exchange – We both win something
Persuasion – We follow because we want to
Respect – We follow because of the respect
for the influencer
Principle
Our value and
significance rises
when we influence
others at a time
when it is needed
most.
•
Hurt enough that
they have to change
•
Learn enough that
they want to change
•
Receive enough that
they are able to
change
“There comes a special moment in
everyone’s life, a moment for which
that person was born. That special
opportunity, when he seizes it, will
fulfill his mission – a mission for which
he is uniquely qualified. In that
moment, he finds greatness. It is his
finest hour.”
- Winston Churchill
WHY DO I INFLUENCE OTHERS?
Principle
Why you do something will ultimately
determine what you do.
LEVELS OF INFLUENCE
Modeling
Motivating
Mentoring
Multiplying
MODELING
People are first
influenced by what
they see
Positive & trustworthy
Over time – build or
bust
MOTIVATES
Creates a bridge
Builds confidence
Builds self-worth
MENTORING
Mentoring is pouring your life into
other people and helping them
reach their potential
MULTIPLYING
The people that you have mentored and
influenced have now become positive
influencers in the lives of others
GENUINE INTEGRITY
Integrity is not for sale
Integrity is about the small things
Character isn’t created in a crisis; it only comes
to light
IT’S AN INSIDE JOB!
Integrity is not…
Determined by circumstances
Based on credentials
To be confused with reputation
INTEGRITY MEASURES
How well do I treat people from whom I can gain nothing?
Am I the same when I’m in the spotlight as I am when I’m alone?
Do I put other people ahead of my personal agenda?
Do I have an unchanging standard for moral decisions, or do
circumstances determine my choices?
Do I make difficult decisions, even when they have a personal cost
attached to them?
“When I lay down the reins of my
administration, I want to have one friend
left. And that friend is inside of myself.”
QUALITIES OF INTEGRITY
Model consistency of character
Employ honest
communication
Value transparency
Exemplify humility
Support others
Fulfill your promises
Embrace an attitude of service
NURTURES PEOPLE
NURTURES PEOPLE
Depth of your concern
determines the height of
your influence
Position versus people –
which do you love more
Leaders who love their
people strengthen their
position
NURTURES PEOPLE
“There are a lot of coaches with good ball
clubs who know the fundamentals and have
plenty of discipline but still don’t win the
game. Then you come to the third
ingredient: If you’re going to play together
as a team, you’ve got to care for one another.
You’ve got to love each other. Each player
has got to be thinking about the next guy.”
– Vince Lombardi

“Men are developed the
same way gold is mined.
Several tons of dirt must
be moved to get an ounce

“It’s one thing to build a product; it’s another to build a
company, because companies are nothing but men, and

men. The men build the product.”

leaders who stood in front
of a platoon and all they
saw was a platoon. But

JOHN MAXWELL
“The reality is that influence is a choice.
We can be indifferent to people, pursue our
own agenda’s, have bad attitudes, and refuse
to work with a team. Or we can care about
people, be inclusive, work to be positive,
cooperate with others, and try to positively
influence them. Every day is a choice.”
