  2. This is very accurate! Being a leader is being ready to motivate, work with, and grow your personnel with no credit back unless recognition comes from those who see it, not because you request it. Influence is a powerful tool and should be used appropriately! Good post, sorry so much time has passed I am still getting to know wordpress!
