The Intelligent Influencer – Speak with Conviction in the Workplace

Mastering Influence at Work: Insights for Business Professionals

In the fast-paced world of business, relationships are the cornerstone of success. While some connections seem to form effortlessly, most require careful nurturing and effort. Understanding how to influence and communicate effectively with colleagues, clients, and stakeholders can make the difference between a thriving career and a stagnant one.

Key Takeaways from Effective Influence in Relationships

1. Understanding Your Impact on Others

Many of us go through our professional lives without fully realising the impact we have on those around us. As William Boyd aptly put it, “The last thing we discover about ourselves is our effect.” By becoming more aware of your impact, you can begin to shape your interactions more intentionally and effectively.

2. Adapting Your Communication Style

We all know that we should flex our communication style to influence others, but in real situations, most of us default to our “natural” selves. Flexing your “natural” communication style is crucial for building rapport, gaining trust, and ultimately influencing outcomes in a professional setting.

3. Developing Authentic Versatility

Successful business communicators know that one influencing style is not sufficient. They authentically adapt their “natural” behaviour to engage and appeal to different communication styles. But does this mean they are simply acting? Not at all. Authentic versatility means being true to yourself while being able to connect with others in the most effective way.
