3 Tips on Becoming a Leader and Increasing Your Authority Status

If you want authority status in your specialty, then you must become a leader. You can longer afford to be a follower, if you want authority status. You must believe that you have valuable experience, knowledge, and insights to share with your potential clients. You must step out of your comfort zone and take a few risks. If you don't believe in yourself, how can you expect others to see you as the expert. Here are three tips to help you become a leader and grow your authority status.  Listen to the podcast for even more information about the importance of becoming a leader.

1.   Focus on Learning

As an entrepreneur, you must position yourself so that you are always learning and staying on top of your field. Your area of expertise is not stagnant. There are always new developments. You must stay abreast of any changes. As you learn new things you will gain more confidence in your ability to positively impact your clients' lives. Your new knowledge and confidence help position you as a recognized expert.

2. Focus on Networking

Remember to reach out and make connections with other people. Your contacts can offer you valuable insights as you listen and learn. It is so important that you ask questions and listen to the answers. As you take risks with expanding the scope of your network, your leadership skills will grow. You will also uncover new opportunities to help others. As your network expands, the opportunities for you to demonstrate your skills as a leader will also grow.

3. Focus on Teaching  Others

Speaking engagements,  publishing books, and presenting webinars and teleseminars all position you as a leader. You could also teach others on your own podcast series. As you share more of what you know, you will receive positive feedback.  There is nothing that speaks louder about your authority status and expertise than teaching other people.  Over the years we have given thousands of presentations and watched as our authority status soared.  You can do the same.

You must continue to take risks and push past your comfort zone. You may be surprised at how much you know. Remember you have to believe that you are an authority before anyone else will. So step up and lead. Taking on the role of leader will help you tremendously in building your brand and positioning you as an authority in your specialty.
