A leader can have a great impact not only on team performance, but also on helping them learn new skills, such as a second language.
Although often overlooked, leaders have a key role in any learning process and can be especially influential when it comes to boosting engagement in new initiatives, such as starting with or mastering a new language.
What is the link between influence and leadership?
Can there be leadership without influence or influence without leadership? As such, we would say that “influence” is the capacity to persuade another person to change their mind, and this is a fundamental aspect of leadership — being able to convince others and bringing them round to their views and actions are intrinsic to being a leader.
In his book “Liderazgo Influyente. Up and Across”, Andrés Araya explains that “a person can be influential without being a leader, but there is no such thing as a good leader who is not influential.”
By understanding the influential nature of leadership, we can fully grasp the crucial role of leaders when it comes to making decisions or properly advising employees into advanced training, an option which they probably wouldn’t consider without their leader’s support.
