Positive Influence – How to Lead Your World was written by seminar speaker and executive coach Grant D. Fairley. It is a book on leadership for experienced and new leaders discussing some of the big ideas of leading others using stories and concepts you can use. This is a great resource for coaches who support and train leaders.

There is nothing like a lighthouse to guide travelers in dark times.  When it is your turn to lead – you need to be ready to shine a light that others can follow.  Whether your world is in a large company, a government department, a retail manager, an educator or the leader of a not-for-profit organization – how will you lead? How can you make a difference in your world – no matter who you are and no matter what you do?  In this comprehensive presentation, a wide range of topics are covered to make you someone who is influential wherever you are called to lead.  Unlike people who control others, people who influence can have a much more profound and long-lasting impact on the lives and futures of others.  Learn what it takes to prepare yourself to be a leader who is a positive influence.  Then learn methods to change the course of your history by being a positive force in the lives around you. Increase your effectiveness as a leader or team member, increase your sales, set a new standard in customer service, redefine your relationships, find a new level of personal insight and peace that will free you to be your best self.  This powerful presentation is a whole person approach to business and life to become a positive influence where ever you are leading.  Like a pebble tossed into the water – your influence will be felt in the lives of those you lead for generations to come.
