Question to “Ask Roshan”

How does one influence people?

Excerpt from Roshan’s answer

Influence is the pulse of leadership; it’s the ability to move people to get things done. The key to influencing people is the relationship you have with them. The depth of your relationship with people will determine if they are willing to follow you or to do things the way you wanted them to do. Everybody has the power to influence, because we are naturally followers in many sense. Practise influencing others with your close friends first before leveling up to your co-workers and your bosses.

How this show came about?
This TV segment called “Ask Roshan” came about when Matt Naylor, Hafiz Hori & Roshan Thiran were travelling to Johor for a gig with Citibank. During the drive over, Matt set up Facebook Live and took questions from everyone via Facebook to Roshan who spontaneously answered them. This resulted in hundreds of questions popping up and getting live answers from Roshan and even some of the Citibank leaders, including their CEO, Lee Lung Nien.
