I will discuss that being influential at work takes hard work and must be earned over time.
“It is more important to influence people than to impress them.” — Adrian Rogers, an American pastor and author
We all want to be influential and respected. We want others to appreciate our ideas and feedback. We want to contribute to the team that grows the business.
“All human beings wield influence — a powerful sword granted at birth. Wield your sword with care.” — Richelle E. Goodrich, an author
When we can influence our colleagues at work, we can achieve our goals. Our thoughts and opinions have weight. Our colleagues listen and pay attention to what we have to say.
Being influential just doesn’t happen overnight. It’s not given out on a silver platter. There’s no Disney’s FastPass for influence.
It takes hard work and must be earned over time by doing what you say you will do.
It’s about achieving excellent results. It’s about leading others through challenging times. It’s about growing your knowledge and skills to excel in your role and bring colleagues together to solve business problems and jump on opportunities.
“Your influence on others is your net worth; treat it as such.” — Peprah Boasiako, a United States Army veteran and author
