Successful individuals are able to influence and flourish in a dynamic, constantly changing world. They present their ideas persuasively, remain open to others’ perspectives and skillfully find common ground. And they easily flex their styles to match new situations and audiences.
Influence has become a cornerstone skill, but we’re not born with it; it takes development of confidence and practice of new skills. It is important to learn how to thrive in a leaner, flatter, more cross-functional environment. Adding the power of influence to the knowledge and technical skills you already have is an important step to self improvement: develop confidence , make new connections and become your best. One can achieve their true goals through collaboration and shared accountability. Influence drives today’s world and is one of the most important skills to master.
