answer this
Answer This:

Who has a great influence on you as a leader? Why? What characteristics do they exhibit?



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!

Build Influence
  • Influence grows out of well nurtured relationships. It’s the end-result of actions, behaviors, and intentions geared toward building trust, establishing credibility, and adding value.
  • Persuasion is more of an “in the moment” skill. It’s the combination of charisma, talent, and technique that can get things done without preamble. Ironically, despite its expediency, persuasion is actually best received by people who have faith in the persuader’s degree of influence.
