Powerful leadership will be essential as businesses and organizations continue to transform into a more interconnected, interdependent, global workplace during the “new normal” of 2022. That’s because leaders can no longer lead solely by the power of their authority or position. They need the personal power of influence - the ability to positively impact the actions, behavior, opinions of, not just their direct reports, but all stakeholders to achieve targeted results.
One of the most important determinants of leadership effectiveness is success in influencing people and teams. If your leaders and managers don’t have influence, they will have difficulty leading others and implementing the goals and strategies of your organization. Therefore, it is crucial that all your leaders - whatever their level - understand the range of influence techniques they can use, know when and how to use them, as well as build their personal power base so that they can play a greater role in contributing to the company’s success.
