Most Powerful Word Used to Influence Others

Most Powerful Word Used to Influence Others | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
What you have to say is not powerful.  The power comes from positioning your ideas and offers in the CONTEXT of what’s important to the listener.

 

The most powerful word you can use to influence others is the word CONTEXT.  Context is not the word you should be using, but rather the strategy on how to influence others.

 

What you have to say is not powerful.  The power comes from positioning your ideas and offers in the CONTEXT of what’s important to the listener.  This may sound like a minor point to you, but it is the GREATEST DISTINCTION of what separates the most influential people from others.

 

Here’s an example.  Scott Nadell, Director of Sales for Mextrx LLC, a third party biller in New York specializing in workers compensation and no fault receivables, called me up after reading Lead, Sell or Get Out of the Way.  He asked me how could he do a better job of opening his client’s minds to listen to what he has to say.  He described his clients as being closed minded and downright rude to him.

I'll let David Marquet know that you've featured the article about him on your Scoop.it! page.
Dale R. Wilson's comment, July 29, 2012 6:27 PM
I am glad to see you feature the article, "A Submarine Captain On The Power Of Leadership Language," about Captain David Marquet and his book, "Turn The Ship Around!" David Marquet is a remarkable person.

David's book reveals a solid, well-proven leadership approach which comes down to empowering people; giving people real responsibility and real authority; inspiring the empowerment of engaged people and leadership at all levels. On the USS Santa Fe, David's leadership structure established mechanisms that created a favorable environment in which the crew were released to grow their knowledge and skills, ultimately gaining the autonomy over their tasks and resources to become leaders. At the same time, David's approach challenged the paradigm of the hierarchical organization by revealing the process to tear down pyramids, create a flat organization, and to develop leaders, not followers.

David's accomplishments onboard the USS Santa Fe are impressive, and his book is a must read.

It Takes Empathy

It Takes Empathy | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"In a world where we’re taught the importance of monitoring and measuring sentiment with the new tools before us, we miss the essential ingredient to meaningful relationships…empathy.

 

Once you listen, not monitor, but truly listen to customer activity and observe online behavior, you cannot help but feel both empathy and harmony. And naturally, the response it begets is only human."

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Just how many types of stories are there, you ask? The answer is, as usual, it depends who you ask. Various storytelling aficionados categorize stories in different ways, and there are no hard and fast rules.

 

These are overviews of each (read the full article for more details and prompts to help you come up with each type of story):

1. Introducing me

2. Conveying values

3. Teaching

4. Jumpstarting action

5. Inspiring

 

Here's the link to the full article: http://www.internal-monologue.com/2012/07/careful-around-campfire-five-types-of.html ;

 

These 5 broad categories and the examples shared in each are really good and will build a good foundation for leadership storytelling. According to Paul Smith in his forthcoming book on leadership storytelling "Lead With A Story" (August 20112), there are actually 21 different categories/applications for leaders to know about and use.

 

But this article brings clarity to the topic and will definitely get you started!

 

Thank you to fellow curator Gimli Goose for this article!

Achieving Success with Personal Leadership

Achieving Success with Personal Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
he world is full of recipes for success, but many times we forget that success comes from within ourselves with work that we do. I would even claim that success is mainly about attitude. When you have the right attitude, you focus on the right things, obstacles are there to overcome, you feel better and work more efficiently. I am sure you know what happens if you have a bad attitude: nothing seems to work at that time. Here are some questions for you to ask to become more successful through your own attitude towards other people and life. Even though you may not have answers to every one of them, thinking about these matters will already take you towards your personal success.
