5 Power Words That Persuade
Influence is not something tangible, physical or material. Yet it’s real. You know when you are in the presence of it. Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Steve Jobs just to name a few.
The Power of Words
There is no leadership without influence. You can have a leadership title, yet have no influence. How influential are you? Does your team listen to your every word with attention, openness and trust? Is your team inspired to take action simply by what you say and do?
Influence comes from the latin root “influere” meaning to flow in.
- Are your leaders struggling to get strong performance from your people?
- Are your leaders driving results through their own efforts, not their team?
- Is your company suffering from operational breakdowns, late deliveries, low employee motivation and more?
Today’s most successful companies all have one trait in common. Their high performance organizations are driven by a strong accountability culture. Yet despite many companies’ well-intentioned efforts to create strong accountability, leaders still struggle to make it a reality. Mediocrity, lack of execution and operational breakdowns are hallmarks of poor accountability and an out of control, under-performing organization.
The REAL Truth Why Your Leaders are Struggling with Accountability and Under-performing Teams:
- As a leader, you can’t develop strong results-driven accountability with your team unless you have strong personal accountability with YOURSELF.
