The greatest myth of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead.
Great leaders aren't paralyzed by not being in a position of recognized authority. Great leaders lead with or without that authority and learn to unleash their positive influence wherever they are.
In this six-session, video-based study (DVD/streaming video sold separately), dynamic author and pastor Clay Scroggins shares his first-hand experience working under Andy Stanley at North Point Community Church.

- Learn to leverage influence instead of authority
- Create a game plan for leading yourself well
- Change the energy of your team by choosing positivity
