Talking Points & Agenda:

“Becoming a Person of Influence” is a model for anyone who aspires to grow as a leader. Based on a book written in tandem by Dr. John C. Maxwell and Jim Dornan, the book spells out ten fundamental qualities that define influencers. The authors carefully point out that a person’s influence does not develop overnight, but rather through a progression of four stages: modeling, motivating, mentoring, and multiplying. Influence can be acquired, but it only grows in increments. The good news is that no matter where you stand on the stairway of influence, there are learnable qualities to help you climb to the next step. Key concepts to be discussed in the talk:

  • Key Leadership Laws in the context of Project & Stakeholder Management:
    • The Law of the Lid
    • The Law of Influence
    • The Law of Buy-in
  • I – Integrity with People
  • N – Nurturing People
  • F – Faith in People
  • L – Listening to People
  • U – Understanding People
  • E – Enlarging People
  • N – Navigating for People
  • C – Connecting with People
  • E – Empowering Others
  • R – Reproducing Others
