Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Influencing – is it a position or a skill?

Share Your Vision Not Your Comands

People are influenced by many things, in business it is often by a great vision or how others behave and act towards you.  How the leadership behave and encourage you to develop and grow within your role.  One can also be influenced by treats, fear and the use of authority or by the position someone holds.

If you hold a senior position in business my advice is to use your skills of personal influence rather than using positional power.  One day your position will be gone and so will the power you think it might hold. If you have the skill and ability to influence by your vision and good treatment of others this can never be lost.

If you can only influence others by using your positional power – stop now and learn how to influence through better methods.  You will see that results will be more effective with greater impact for all.
