I have been teaching influence and personal power to people all over the world since 2000. Interestingly, my husband recently said that it’s hard for him to rally around somebody’s ideas when they show no passion.
I one-hundred percent agree. I am a big believer that influential people naturally have passion which attracts others to them. They possess an emotional intensity that attracts you to them, their ideas, and words. Don’t get me wrong, intensity doesn’t mean loud -it’s just an energetic force field you know is there.
Also though, influential people understand emotions behind why people act or react the way they do. And if you can’t deal with emotions of others it’s hard to get them to buy in, say yes, move forward and achieve results with you.
Do you think about emotions when influencing others?
