“Influence without Authority”
How to influence your boss, peers, clients, and other partners.
- Doing quality work as a way of gaining credibility and positive reputation, which are the entry price for influence. Influence requires more than a technique
- Cultivating strong relationships
- Placing the organization’s interest first, so you are not seen as self-serving
- Avoiding self-inflicted traps, such as writing difficult people off, missing learning opportunities, or failing to notice what others want.
