“Influencers should never neglect the fact that their own attitude is one of their most effective tools of persuasion.”

Here are a few tips passed along in an article written by Brio partner Caroline Ménard in the June 2016 issue of Leader magazine, distributed to Desjardins Group GMs.

This advice can help you use your power of influence to become a better leader, or more specifically to become a leader/influencer – an important asset for any manager.

Caroline discusses the three key elements of a leader/influencer’s toolbox:

  1. Preparing and knowing where you’re going
  2. Listening to others
  3. Setting an example
