What is influence? I define it as the ability to persuade or impact another or others in such a way that they honor your request, take a course of action you recommend or make a change in how they behave or in their belief system.
How you attempt to influence others counts – It counts in how you inspire others, in the people you attract to work with you and in the alliances you build. Yet there’s little readily available information on how leaders can better understand what they are doing well to influence others and what is missing. I’d like to share a few observations that can help you enhance your influencing skills.
