The ability to persuade and influence others is a key leadership skill.
Almost every day, leaders and managers have to gain buy-in from colleagues and collaboration across the organization in order to meet strategic objectives. While some people rely on the power of their position to enforce what they want, others seem to achieve their goals seemingly effortlessly, without jeopardizing their professional relationships and reputations.
Savvy leaders understand that influencing skills can be learned, and are a key part of effectively persuading others, garnering support, adopting a decision, and addressing opposition.
