Leadership and influence are often thought of as happening IN FRONT of those being led and influenced. But the truth is, they can also be achieved by leading from behind.
Hebrews 3:13 says that we should encourage each other every day. Encouragement is a great way to lead and influence those who God has placed in our lives. Encouragement is something that we can do behind people, pushing them toward the goals that God has called them to achieve.
