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.
Be sure to drop your questions in the comments below and we’ll try our best to get Roshan to answer them in the next episode! Follow him directly on Facebook for more questions and answers. To follow with him on LinkedIn, click here.
Roshan is the Founder and “Kuli” of the Leaderonomics Group of companies. He believes that everyone can be a leader and "make a dent in the universe," in their own special ways. He is featured on TV, radio and numerous publications sharing the Science of Building Leaders and on leadership development. Follow him at www.roshanthiran.com
