Effective Influencing Skills and Strategies

Success in every walk of life depends on how well you can influence others – whether it is implementing your pet idea in an organization, negotiating for benefits, or generally creating a favorable impression that others form of you. Management is an influencing game. A manager, who does not know how to influence others in an organizational hermit, seizes to be effective in achieving individual and organizational goals. Management is not about doing everything by oneself, but is about getting things done with the help of others, by influencing them.
