Title: “Are you underestimating your influence?”
THIS WEEK’S TOPIC:
Every person we meet or interact with provides us with an opportunity for influence — positive or negative. That includes of course those with whom we spend most of our time, but it can also include complete strangers.
Social psychology professor Vanessa Bohns says we often underestimate, or fail to consider, our potential for influence. These can be powerful interactions and can have more of a lasting impact than realize.
I often talk about influence related to our careers. While this episode certainly contains some valuable career advice, it holds important value closer to home as well.
