Influence is not something that’s learned overnight. It’s an art that requires many skills and takes practice to master.
Influence also is about personal significance and purpose—the impact each of us has or doesn’t have on others and the world around us.
Analyze your positive and negative interactions to understand what works and doesn't work. Reflect on why you like or dislike someone to gain emotional intelligence.
Leverage personal experiences as opportunities for learning effective influence and communication.
When influencing, focus not just logic but emotional appeals like Aristotle's kairos (right timing) and telos (purpose). Align delivery with audience's mindset and values.
Emotion moves people more than pure reason. Structure messages to resonate at a deeper level.
Carefully sequence communications to facilitate acceptance.
First ensure psychological safety and care. Then inspire and engage.
Align sequence with audience culture. Brains shut down when messages skip steps or threaten people.
Methodically build resonance.
Self-awareness is key for aligning messages and behaviors with values. Reflect honestly on how others see you to improve emotional intelligence.
Self-coaching, feedback and journaling build consciousness to come across as gracious, confident and approachable.
Influence by framing issues advantageously using stories and metaphors.
Frames shape how people interpret reality.
Battle for hearts and minds through credible, meaningful frames. But don't fabricate - authenticity matters.
Ineffective communicators overload people with information.
Listen more than talk. Observe reactions. Validate others' perspectives. Ask clarifying questions.
Choose words carefully to find common ground. two-way dialogue beats one-sided lecturing.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
