ACE Leadership Training:
Influence and Buy-in
December 10, 2013
In an ideal world, what would a successful ACE program at your school look like? Draw it.
Be sure to include everyone involved in making it a success.
The Big Idea: Influence is the currency of change.
Who has a great influence on you as a leader? Why? What characteristics do they exhibit?
DESCRIBE WHY IN AS MUCH DEPTH AS POSSIBLE
Change in thoughts, feelings, or behavior as a result of a leader’s personality. Influence is having a vision of the optimum outcome for a situation or organization and then, without using force or coercion, motivating people to work together toward making the vision a reality.
NOTE: Influence is not passive!
Identify your stakeholders
Choose one thing you will do in the next two weeks to build influence.
