Who do you think is the most influential person in your career field? It could be a boss, a mentor, or someone you've never even personally met. But whoever it is you're thinking of, we can guarantee they're not just naturally influential. Influence is something they worked on, and it's something you can work on, too.
And influence is more than just charm or speaking skills. It's also the ability to listen intently, to resolve conflict, to collaborate, and to grow mutually beneficial relationships. It might take time to develop these skills, but the results are worth it.
This month's eZine will give you a wonderful foundation for building your influence. Our Development Challenge explores how you can listen actively, find common ground, and show that you value others. We've also provided an array of resources that will teach you about addressing conflicts, making connections at work, being more assertive, and expanding your overall influence.
You'll find an interesting feature article in this eZine from Russell Gibson. As part of his graduate studies at Creighton University, Gibson partnered with Tero to better understand how people learn skills like conflict engagement, negotiation, and communication. In his article, he describes his findings - and what he gained from the Tero course, Influence: How to Achieve Winning Outcomes.
Every working professional should know how to increase their influence, no matter where they are in their careers. We hope that this month's eZine will help you do just that.
Join Ro and Deb as they discuss assumptions and the best way to combat them.
