Please register for Learning to Become a Person of Influence on Apr 07, 2016 7:00 PM CDT at:
https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8355315676922352132 Everyone influences others. You don’t have to be in a high-profile occupation to be an influencer; whenever your life connects with another person, you exert influence. Everything you do—at home, at work, or at play—has an impact on the lives around you. No matter what your goals are in life, you can achieve them faster, you can be more effective, and the contribution you make can be longer lasting if you learn to develop your influence.
People respond to one another according to their level of influence. The more influence we have, then the more people seek our advice, trust our decisions, and follow our lead. If we desire to be successful and lead the way, then we must focus on gaining influence.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

“These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)
Invest in teaching, mentoring, modeling your faith to your children. Don’t allow them to grow up unfamiliar with your God. They may not all choose your God but they each will be able to make an informed decision.
“I’m so not hearing that,” Robert told Susan. Robert was thoroughly H hot. The nerve of Tim to tell him he needed to include others in his assessment. “These people have no idea what I do,” he reasons with Susan. Robert felt insulted that other leaders in different parts of the company would be invited to critique his plans. Robert had been doing this project just fine without sitting around a table subjecting himself to questions. “Who were they to question him?” Robert was so incensed Susan could see the heat rising from his hair.
Robert is not alone. Proverbs 18:17 reads, “He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.” Most leaders have suffered from tunnel vision during their development. Luckily, Robert had a good coach.
Susan through questioning Robert helped him to understand the importance of teamwork. His passion was misdirected; he saw Tim’s insistence that others give him feedback on his plans as a direct reflection of his competence. Susan helped Robert as John Maxwell would say “lift his lid.” She helped Robert see the big picture. His project wasn’t being carried out in a vacuum, his was one of many company projects all aimed at fulfilling the company vision. Teamwork then was an invaluable asset to saving the company money and improving its efficiency.
Each of us can benefit from a good coach; someone who opens our eyes to the bigger picture. Do you have a good coach? Better yet, “Are you open to coaching?”
