Affirmation: I am confident
Thought for the week: 5 Tips to Gain Influence
1. Asking questions
A question always opens up new possibilities.
- Be interested
Be interested not interesting. To gain greater power in communication a vital element is to listen and be interested in the other person. This is a way to make the other person feel worthy and helps them open up to you.
Be aware and get present with three points of your body. This is a great way to bring you back to yourself.
- Lower your barriers
The next time you start getting defensive, stop, breathe and just imagine pushing your barriers down. Barriers separate us from each other, and true presence is not possible with them.
- Be neutral
Choose to function from what some would call a neutral or open-minded perspective. A key element of gaining influence is not holding on to any point of view, but to have the freedom of all choices in the moment and the willingness to receive any information.
