Becoming a Person of Influence

Everyone influences others. You don’t have to be in a high profile occupation to be an influencer; whenever your life connects with another person, you exert influence. Everything you do– at home, at work, or at play—has an impact on the lives around you. No matter what your goals are in life, you can achieve them faster, you can be more effective and the contribution you make can be longer lasting if you learn to develop your influence.

A person of influence:

  • Has integrity with people
  • Nurtures other people
  • Has faith in people
  • Listens to people
  • Understands people
  • Enlarges people
  • Navigates for other people
  • Connects with people
  • Empowers people
  • Reproduces other influencers
