How much influence do you have in your organization?
Influence is where the rubber meets the road in the form of driving results.
There’s no doubt in every organizational setting, a small group of people decide who does what and what gets done.
Are you one of those individuals impacting the key priorities and decisions?
True influence…the kind where people seek you out and value your input and involve you and look to you to lead, isn’t bestowed by a title, it’s born of hard work. Influence is earned over time based on a great number of exposures.
What is it that people with influence in an organization do differently?
Those that cultivate power and influence work hard on managing themselves. They are emotionally intelligent. These power-pursuers also are innately aware of the impact that they have on others, and they draw upon well-honed skills to manage external perceptions and to adapt to changing situations.
Those with power and influence have carefully thought through their own personal brand and value proposition, and work hard reinforcing this brand through their actions and behaviors.
Their focus is on getting work done through others and asserting their agenda, and to do that, they must forge respectful relationships, build strong social networks and guiding coalitions and they must support others more often than they ask for support.
Those with influence define the rules, select the players and enjoy the outcomes.
It’s time to begin deliberately and ethically working on cultivating your workplace influence.
