Influence And Impact
Many competent, capable leaders and professionals have achieved success, but feel they could be getting more in terms of rewards, recognition and career growth. Others have been flying high, but found that things slowed down. Still others are overburdened and time pressured, and feel stressed, lonely and exhausted. Whatever the cause, they have lost the ability to sway others – their words and actions do not carry the weight that they should.
For most of these people, the key to building influence and impact is to understand and relentlessly focus on the mission-critical parts of your role – what you need to do, and how you need to do it. Then, build on those successes by finding ways to contribute even more.
This book provides a step-by-step guide to identifying your enduring strengths, the needs of the organization and your manager, and the cultural norms by which work is accomplished. Armed with these frameworks, we help people focus on, develop into, and succeed at the elements of the job that truly matter.
For those who discover that their job does not meet their needs or expectations, we help you understand your strengths, values and preferences, and create a plan for finding the job that fits.
