The Power of One – Leading From Any Seat. What does this mean? As travel and expense managers, it is at best a challenge but can be very difficult to increase adoption and compliance when we are not in a position of authority over those we engage. The power of one agenda will demonstrate what one person, one unit, one org can do to create change across your university. Leading from any seat is a compliment to the power of one. Leaders don’t have to be in a position of authority; proven leaders are driven by passion, desire and a dedication to improve people, processes and programs around them!
