Who in your life has been the biggest influence on you?
When was a time you felt very influential in your life?
Having influence affects every facet of your life. You are indirectly selling yourself, every moment of every day.
If you want to master the art of influence, here are three key ingredients that are common amongst the most influential leaders:
1. Teach A New Perspective Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa all knew how to share and articulate how they think about problems and opportunities that others have not considered before. Influential leaders give a new perspective on how to see the world and think differently.
When you understand their world, their objectives, and what is important to them you’re able to connect with people on a deeper level. When you connect with people on a deeper level, you are able to open the gate to a new perspective. They are more likely to be receptive to new ideas.
2. Challenge Them Influential leaders nudge and stretch you beyond your limited thinking or thinking that you are limited. When you challenge individuals, you invite them to step up their game, raise the bar and level up.
You encourage them to show up at a higher level. People actually respect and admire those who are able to help them achieve what they are striving for.
3. Be the Role Model People believe the message when they believe in the messenger. This requires trust and congruency of how you show up and whether or not your actions are congruent with your values.
Be a person of your word and stick closely to it. When you set a strong intention of who you are and how you show up, people around you are always watching.
When you change someone'e view of the world, you change their world. That's what influence is all about.
