Thought for today:
‘The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.’
— Kenneth Blanchard

Influence is on my mind this morning because I’m running an online workshop on Influence & Persuasion.
With a bit Selling thrown in.
I am heavily influenced here by Robert Cialdini’s book of that name, “Influence”.
And persuaded by James Borg’s book, “Persuasion”.
However, one of my favourite books about selling is Dan Pink’s “To Sell Is Human”.
Combining these skills takes practice.
So we’ll be playing games, making mistakes and having a bit of fun along the way.
