    Who is your favorite influencer in the management or leadership space?

      There are many influencers in the leadership and management arena, and the interviewer would like to know who your favorite one is. An influencer is a famous individual who is often the pace-setter when it comes to change and ideas in your industry. They may be someone famous, an author, the host of a podcast that you listen to, a journalist, or a local business owner that you admire.

      Some of the top influencers in leadership and people-management right now are:

      - Simon Sinek
      - Lolly Daskal
      - John Maxwell
      - Gary Vaynerchuk
      - Tony Robbins

      Rachelle's Answer

      "My favorite influencer in the leadership space right now is Lolly Daskal. I recently read her book, 'The Leadership Gap,' which taught me a great deal about what makes an effective leader. Have you read it?"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have followed the work of Tony Robbins for years now, and recently attended one of his workshops dedicated to modernizing the thought process of an effective leader. I have put a great deal of effort into molding myself into a great leader, before even taking on my first leadership role. I am ready!"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Simon Sinek's TED talk about the 'Three Golden Circles' completely changed the way that I think about leadership. He says that leaders are responsible for the people first. When you take responsibility for your people or your team, they will in turn - take care of the results."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I have taken several leadership courses through John Maxwell and am a big fan because his principals are so empowering. Another book I've read is Step Up; Lead in Six Moments that Matter by Henry Evans. This book points out that there are many situations both at work and in our personal lives that call for leadership, even if you're not the one in charge."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This book sounds very interesting! I like that you give a couple of options, and dig into them, leaving more opportunity for the interviewer to relate.
