Top 10 Tips for Becoming More Influential

22 January 2019

People often ask us how to get better at influencing - a team, colleagues, upper management, the boss.

Unfortunately, there is no formula. Each situation is different and each person you wish to influence will be persuaded by different factors - such as budgets, values, creativity, tradition, ambition, strategic plans, turn of mind and even turn of phrase.

However, although there’s no recipe for influencing individuals or individual situations, you can become a more influential person. That way, you have an edge: impact and respect. With that advantage in hand, you can set out to discover ways to influence that are effective in your company’s culture.

Here are 10 tips for becoming a more influential person.

What to do when your team won't take responsibilty

28 September 2018

Irresponsibility doesn’t see the damage it does, until it’s too late.

Top 6 Sins of Ineffective Managers

2 March 2018

In the last 28 years of teaching leadership, I've seen an awful lot of fads come and go. I've also seen a flood of leadership efforts that produced far less than the leaders hoped or expected. They wasted great amounts of time, money, and energy on activities that produced little more than frustration.
