Understanding authority is a crucial aspect of the human existence. Excelling in life, work, and society requires a clear and accurate understanding of what authority is and how to leverage, respect and submit to it. If we can truly understand authority, you will be One Grip Higher.

I recently came across these three definitions for authority that I found insightful and worth sharing. The come from author and speaker Gary Ezzo If you are in a position of authority, meditate on these three aspects of your role and consider evaluating how you measure up in each area.

  • Authority is not the law but the power to enforce the law.
  • Authority does not mean making everyone equal but treating everyone equitable.
  • Authority must be understood as fair play.
