Leadership is influence, nothing more or less.
If you peel the onion of influence..
1 “weapon of influence” is likability.
And since leaders lead people, being likable is a very important quality.
As such, I just re–read Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” which is absolute gold.
So in todays lesson, I wanted to provide 6 simple yet very effective ways you intentionally become likable which will make you a better leader.
Six ways to Make People Like You
- Become genuinely interested in other people.
- Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
- Be a good listener. …
- Talk in terms of the other person’s interests.
- Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely.
