THE FOUNDATIONS OF INFLUENCE
As coaches, we do what we do because we want to create a positive impact in the world. To show up and create the biggest impact possible, it’s important to consider how we are building our platform, as the bigger the platform, the more influence we have. We’re discussing the foundations of influence.
In the first episode of Influence By Design, Samantha and Tim discuss the topic of influence, its pillars and why it’s important.
Although influence is defined as the ability to change the thinking and behaviour of others, we sometimes don’t realise, or forget, that influence can also be a two-way process.
Samantha and Tim discuss how the energetic exchange of our behaviours can greatly affect the people around us and influence not just others, but also our business and personal lives.
The first step to influencing others is to look inwards. Influence begins with yourself and knowing your true purpose. We need to have an awareness of how we are leading ourselves and how we impact the people around us.
When you know your real purpose in life, it opens up opportunities to help you create a positive influence on other people.
