An organization’s success depends on the full contribution and productivity of each and every employee. Achieving optimal results for your organization requires full engagement of the diverse perspectives which represent your market place as well as your workforce. Engaged teams are the lifeblood of successful organizations. They produce results that far exceed the sum of the individual capacities of their members.
Influence over yourself determines whether you’re fit or overweight, whether you take action or procrastinate, whether you’re a victor or victim. Influence with others determines your effectiveness as a partner, business person and leader. Influence is the ultimate skill in achieving overwhelming success.
