Influencing Stakeholders: Remotely & Face to face

“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It's about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.”

Everyone has a boss as well as peers. To be successful, one must be able to work effectively with any or most of them. The essence of this process is influence. In all likelihood, to be successful at your job, you must be able to “sell” an idea or project, persuade co-workers or peers to provide support and/or resources, or get people to do something that they may not necessarily want or need to do. The ability to move others to achieve important objectives is most effective if you can find a way to couch it in terms where everyone wins (you, me, and the organization). An underlying principle of persuasion is that people expect reciprocity in the process. To be able to persuade effectively, you must create win-win trades when in difficult situations or when dealing with difficult individuals or groups.
