Influence should bring about cooperation and collaboration

Influence is one of the biggest factors in both our personal as well as professional lives. It is but natural that we get influenced in one or another, direct or indirect manner. The members of the family we grow up in and the people in the neighborhood or the school are some of the sources that influence us directly as we grow up. Celebrities, achievers and sportsmen are some of the other examples of indirect influence in our lives.

Our managers, peers, colleagues and classmates are other people who influence in our lives. Influence is inevitable. Real influence is one that gently coaxes and motivates another person to follow the footsteps of the influencer. That true influencer is one who doesn’t try to control, but only shows how to do things better by doing it themselves. It should be about bringing about cooperation and collaboration. The ultimate form of influence should reflect what Mahatma Gandhi famously said, “My life is my message”.

How important is influence in the corporate world?

If one has to be an influence on someone else in the workplace, one has to decide whom one wants to influence. Who among these would it be?

  • One’s manager
  • Coworker
  • Employee
  • Customer
  • Suppliers

The power to influence others requires personal power and good communication skills, no matter what the reason for which one is trying to influence: It could be to take someone along with one’s line of thinking or convince them about one’s ideas; it could be to just complete a task, or it could be to work in a team.

High class learning on how to influence others at the workplace

All the elements of how to influence people in the right manner will be taught at a webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the human resources industry.

He is the author of the book, 90 Days to a High-Performance Team.

He will offer important topics, key questions and answers that the participants need to be able to address effectively to improve their team members' and team's performance, no matter how widely distributed everyone is.
