Why a Blog on Influence?
After 20 years of experience in organizations both large and small, I have come to an important conclusion: formal authority is not always the key to business success. More often than not, it is influential people, regardless of rank or direct authority, who get things done and deliver results.
The content for most of the posts on Saying What You Mean originates from the research I’ve conducted in order to create performance-driven leadership training programs for corporations. Many business professionals have used the insights presented here to change how they lead, leverage influence, and equip their teams for greater productivity and measurable results.
Saying What You Mean focuses on enhancing influence for the purpose of achieving organizational objectives and contributing to the greater good. The posts and discussions include topics such as building trusting relationships, earning credibility, and acting with integrity.
My hope is that each reader finds value in the verbiage. Use the ideas and strategies presented here to leave a legacy of influential leadership.
