Building Your Influence

Posted on Posted in Chapter News, Current, Meetings

Session Summary: 

John Maxwell, the author, speaker and pastor who has authored over 100 books on leadership, once said: “Leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.” Whether or not you consider yourself a leader, you do possess an ability to influence others.

But do you consider yourself an influencer? Not the sort of influencer you hear about today – you know who I’m referring to, oftentimes a celebrity who uses social media to endorse or promote a product and leverages their fan base to increase sales. Rather, are you an influencer who inspires or guides the actions of others – even when there is no direct chain of command – meaning, you aren’t the boss (or the parent!)

Here’s the deal, you don’t have to be someone’s boss to be an influencer.

In this session, we’ll cover the six characteristics all true influencers share, what you can do to dial up your own influence, and how to create an Influence Network of your own.
