Influencing Tools – Which Ones Do You Use?

Whatever your organization or business the skill of influencing others is becoming increasingly important.  The effective use of influence provides opportunities for increased communication, collaboration, innovation and desired results.

Aspects of influence include

  1. Empathy:

Think more of “What’s in it for them” and less of “What’s in it for me.”

  1. Intent

Define how your desired outcome will benefit the other person, your organization and yourself.

  1. Reciprocity

Give as much as you take.

In business, understanding human behaviour and how the people you are working with will act, or react, in certain circumstances is essential.  That is where developing the above skills will serve you well.
