In this episode, Jennie and Megan discuss:

  • Leadership is influence. 
  • How can you build your influence?
  • Setting boundaries

Key Takeaways:

  • A leader without a follower is just a guy out for a walk – you have to take the lead and see who’s willing to follow you and if those around you are willing to do the same.
  • Great leadership starts with self-leadership. Have a clear vision and be intentional with your actions because you can’t lead yourself if you don’t know where you’re going.
  • Setting boundaries is about letting someone know what you need in a clear, direct way. It’s not about controlling, it’s holding them accountable.

“Servant leadership is often how people show up with their clients – like you have to serve the client, you give up your own hours, and you let your boundaries get crossed. That’s what went wrong with your leadership.” – Megan Robinson
