Are you where you want to be? Have you improved your verbal and non-verbal communication this year? Are you influential Monday to Monday®?
Influence is a choice, and there are no “quick fixes.” If you hold yourself accountable to seek feedback and practice, you will see positive changes fairly quickly. You will begin to notice how good it feels to authentically connect with your listeners, to powerfully facilitate a meeting and to confidently deliver a message. The leaders whom my team and I coach consistently report seeing immediate improvements, such as how their team responds to them, increased sales and getting more appointments with prospects and customers.
Before you dive into the next item on your to-do list, slow down, take a breath and complete these three steps to begin improving your day-to-day communication.
As you see initial results, your commitment will grow. As your commitment grows, you’ll be even more willing to ask for feedback and to practice, and you’ll see even greater results. It’s an upward spiral that leads to sustained influence. In time, communicating with influence will naturally become part of who you are and what you do every day, in much the same way that consistent diet and exercise lead to sustained health. When you see the positive results, you’ll never want to go back to your old habits.
Here’s to your BEST year ever! You can start anytime!
