“The πŸ”‘ to successful leadership today is influence not authority” – Ken Blanchard

Ken Blanchard Companies

Kids talk about it on social. Executives talk about it as a skill that can be learned or earned.

A must for emerging leaders. . πŸ”ŽWe are drawn to observing those who somehow capture this effortlessly, yet may not even be in a leadership roleπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ .

What if #influence is more about the ❀ than the 🧠? Or better yet a combination of characteristics at the core of a person. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦How do loving parents influence children? #Passion, #Presence, #Belief in others. The ability to block out all the noise and be HERE. Genuinely care, engage and appreciate others. Perhaps even champion them.πŸ† .

4 ways to increase influence:

➑️ #serve Start your workday thinking of at least ONE way you can serve someone. An encouraging word. Acknowledgement. Your time.

➑️ #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 πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ. It may take you minutes. πŸ™Œ .

➑️ #presence. Don’t look away when engaging.Take interest. Even if it means acknowledging an opposing viewpoint. Be present.

➑️ #confidence Stand tall. If you don’t believe in yourself it will show. Step into your light with the intent to help others shine theirs.

Published by Diana G. 20 year corporate executive fueled with a passion to develop others. Lifelong learner, NLP certified coach & mentor. I help people identify strengths and values - to create a vision in line with their purpose. Mindset tools and sessions to help with strategy whether its moving up the corporate ladder, honing in on your million ideas, gaining control of your fitness or health goals, or being that super parent that doesn't feel guilt over self care. There are so many tools I'd love to share & room for us all to win! I credit my 20 years in corporate America developing teams with inspiring me to learn through various modalities how to be effective as an individual, then as a leader. I have helped individuals achieve great strides in their careers, confidence, and presentation where they were previously stagnant. All by sharing tools and mindset skills (or mindhacks as I call them) to achieve focused performance. Both professionally and personally. I help organizations and leaders in creating a culture to impact behavior for measurable success. My vision is to help others- individuals, leaders, and teams- gain confidence as they gain clarity in their goals, determine values, and create vision through deliberate actions. In addition to success coaching and confidence building, I assist leaders in presentation. From developing presence to executive speaking, a little tweak or addition can have a great impact. Honored to be of service.
