I’m writing a book on these Four Stages which describe how a leader influences themselves and others to win agreement and win business. It’s progressing slowly since I have so many things that sit in the Urgent and Important column of Stephen Covey’s Important/Urgent Matrix of Time Management (have a look at this blog http://gatorworks.net/blog/2008/10/taking-time-out-for-some-quadrant-ii/) and the book sits in the Non-Urgent and Important one. It’s working title so far is, “Winning Attention: Developing An Influential Personal Brand”.
I’ve identified Four core qualities “The Four Stages Of Influence Leadership” that make for an outstanding and influential leader: –
- Cast-iron Self Confidence
- Management of Unconscious Behaviour and Communication
- Accurate Ability to Read and Know What Others Are Thinking
- Management of Self Promotion
These are the foundation stones on which a leader of influence can build their success.
