Does the idea of using influence in your career make you feel a little icky or uncomfortable? You’re not alone – but we are going to change that today, my love!

Let’s talk about why influence is actually a GOOD thing – and essential at every stage of your leadership career!

In today’s episode, I share a repeatable 5-step influence process you can start using RIGHT NOW – that will take you from having your ideas shut down, to people buying in!

Ready to ditch the negativity around influence and start using it to uplevel?

I dive into:

  • A repeatable 5-step influence process you can start using RIGHT NOW to make sure you get yourself heard – by the right people, at the right time!
  • One common block I see coming up with my clients at the higher level of leadership (and how to bust it!)
  • An IMPORTANT place to start before you begin the 5-step influence process!
  • What it means to map out your network and some questions to help
