Increase your influencing skills

by The 100 Companies

In today’s world, employees look for consensus-building leadership. Upping your leadership (at any level) requires upping your influencing abilities. Here’s how:

Build your credibility – Being an expert helps, but credibility also encompasses matching your actions to your words, admitting mistakes and being accountable.

Increase your likeability – People are more influenced by people they like, who are often those that interact and speak with tact and diplomacy, who listen when others speak and are a positive influence.

Be trustworthy – Leaders build a solid foundation of trust by giving credit where it is due, delivering what you promise and never, ever , gossiping.
