    • Appreciation is unselfish and sincere. It happens when we stop thinking about ourselves and begin to think of the other person’s good points.

    Build Trust

    Influence is most often and most easily carried through trust: only when a co-worker trusts you will he or she be open to your influence.

    The easiest way to do that is to be honest, no matter what. State your opinions, disclose your apprehensions, and don't keep secrets. 

    Reliability Through Consistency
