When thinking about the skill of influence, it can be useful to consider:
- What are the relationships I am in that require I use the skill of influence? (This may be where you do not have a direct reporting relationship – think peers, other technical experts, other team members)
- What is the end result I am aiming for around the specific project/initiative?
- What is the common ground you are exploring?
- What is important about the end result for the other person?
- What could a win-win look like?
- What are the key areas you are considering?
- The skill of influence is critical for remote workers today. What would help you acquire further skills in this area?
