Growing up leadership was authority; it was positional and transactional. I never bought into this as a follower. Leveraging a title is the lowest form of leadership. Now, through my experience as a leader in the church and nonprofit world, then refined through AL, I understand leadership as influence. It’s broadened my definition of leadership so that anyone can lead and anchored my leadership in purpose, relationship and service. AL has helped to redefine leadership for me, reaffirming my unique design and empowering me to lead in how I am wired. It has help[ed] me to define what leadership is and what leadership isn’t.
