Influence – What does it mean to you?
As many of you know, I usually reserve Wednesdays to highlight women of influence, but this week I would like to hear from you on the subject.
I recently read Stephen R. Covey’s definition of influence:
“The real beginning of influence comes as others sense you are being influenced by them – when they feel understood by you – that you have listened deeply and sincerely, and that you are open.
I love this description. It’s really saying that influence is about putting others first… sincerely listening to them – as a result of that attitude you earn influence.
So, who do you know that does this well? Who needs to be highlighted as a person of influence?
