Watch your personal and organizational success go off the charts! Becoming a person of influence, as outlined in Influence is all about who you are as a person and how you treat those around you. People can be influenced by all kinds of traits and personalities, but a true person of influence does so by meeting the needs of those people around them.

Faith in people 4. Listens to people 5. Understands people 6. Enlarges people 7. Negates for other people 8. Connects with people 9. Empowers people 10.
