Two of the people I met with last week, a systems engineer and a GM, both said the same thing to me, “my biggest challenge is influencing stakeholders.” This inspired me to write an article for the Sydney Morning Herald titled, How to Influence Your Stakeholders.
The No.1 most powerful leadership quality you can have is influence.
▪ bring promotion to you
▪ make people see and hear you
▪ and get you want you want
How do you get what you want? Whether a promotion, getting your project off the ground or funding for your new venture, we all need influence to get what we want.
