Or better yet a combination of characteristics at the core of a person. 👨👩👧👦How do loving parents influence children? #Passion, #Presence, #Belief in others.

4 ways to increase influence:
➡️ #serve Start your workday thinking of at least ONE way you can serve someone. An encouraging word. Acknowledgement. Your time.
➡️ #mindset Back to #1- To do this you must start YOUR mind right.It takes some a few hours prior to a workday to do this optimally 🙋🏼♀️. It may take you minutes. 🙌 .
➡️ #presence. Don’t look away when engaging.Take interest. Even if it means acknowledging an opposing viewpoint. Be present.
