Influence or Authority?
‘The key to successful leadership is influence, not authority’ – Kenneth Blanchard.
Many would agree with that. The question is how do we do it?
Along with our partners in Singapore, coach and trainer Tan Teck Beng and registered psychologist Joy Hou, we’ve did a host of fun activities exploring the art and science of influence, understanding what makes us tick and how to manage relationships while achieving our goals.
With increasing need to collaborate and co-create, we find ourselves working alongside with our peers more and more. If Ken Blanchard is correct, increasing your ability to influence without authority will grow your leadership capability. Therefore, do not wait for greater positional power - exercise your influence today!
