Hello, once again and welcome to another Brain Blinkers Bullet Point. This time a nice short sharp point on the topic of INFLUENCE. Over the last number of months, I have been doing a lot of work with organizations and departments like the Department of Family and Community Services. I will be working intensively with people on how to improve their leadership and influence skills.
Influence is a hot topic at the moment. It’s a little bit of a dirty topic for a lot of people and that in itself is one of the Brain Blinkers topics that I’m having to work on. People’s perception of persuading others, people’s perception of selling, people’s perception of selling their own ideas, often get in their way of being a capable influencer.
One of the first things we do, when we work with people on influence, is to remove those particular brain blinkers or encourage them to think of their job in a different way, or think of the task of influencing in a very different way.
Reframing it as such what I encourage you to do is look on our website and download the free or complimentary ebook on influence and the complimentary ebook on brain blinkers. You can do that on the homepage of https://www.anthonybonnici.com.au/. Have fun with that. It is a fantastic program that helps build your influence skills focusing on what you want, and then explains the three corners or the three pillars if you like of how to influence effectively!? How are you connecting!? How you adding value and solving stuff for people!? How you make them feel safe by proving what you’re doing!?
Have a great day. I look forward to speaking with you again.
