How to Increase your Influence in the Workplace
Influence takes intentional practice and honest, self-reflection! We all have influence, but how are you growing yours every day?
I spoke with Dan Newman— a professional coach, life-long learner who explains that to be effective in organizations today, you must be able to influence people.
What we talked about:
- Theory of multiple intelligences
- Radical candor quadrant
- Howard Gardner
- let go of your ego
- Christie’s reading a book called Sapiens
- Have a quarterly check-in with yourself
- 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
- Nihlist Arby’s
- Have a To-Don’t list
- Stop checking your email so much!
- Dan’s podcast all about failure
- Christie ditched facebook and insta 4 years ago and never looked back. “Living in the now, not someone else’s now”
- Your influence is watered down when you blast everyone too much. Make connections to what they need to do, think about it through their eyes.
- “Your pulse survey is your authority.” Use it to show the leadership team data to reveal where improvement can happen.”
- Impact sandwich: Pulse, analyze, tell everyone your intentions, do the intention, pulse again, tell everyone the results.
- The Social Leadership Handbook
- Dan works at LearntoScale – they coach you to make the lives of everyone you touch more engaging, more equitable, and more fun.
