Life After Death

This saying is typically used when people are referencing the supernatural or reincarnation.  But think about it in this context….

Can I still influence and impact people without being present? 

The greatest impact of a leader is their influence.   Having influence means that the leader can not only change the behavior of people when they are directly involved, but also when they are not.  If your leadership is consistent, fair, humble, uplifting, etc, those who follow you will emulate your practices and behaviors.  Now, they will influence others through what they learned from you.  NFL Head Coaches are not only measured by the number of Super Bowls they win, but also by how many assistant coaches from their staff become head coaches.  Head Coaches such as Vince Lombardi, Bill Parcells, Tony Dungy, Bill Walsh, etc have been success themselves and developed their coaches to the point in which they were able to lead their respective teams to championships.

This concept is also true for families.  As a parent, our primary mission is to develop and raise our children to become better than us.  This is easy when we are in their presence.  The challenge is that most of their time is spent away from us.  It is at these trying times when our discussions on drugs, alcohol, gangs, and any other negative influence become vital.  Based on our values and behavior, we expect our children to react accordingly.

To be influential without being present, you should:

1.  Be consistent in your leadership

2.  Have an influential impact on your followers

3.  Encourage them to succeed.
