Remember that influence is a two-way street. The more you believe in the people around you and incorporate their ideas into your vision, the more they’ll believe in your ideas and incorporate them into their work habits.
If you want to build up this kind of relationship with people, you first have to listen. Listen to everyone’s opinion, and encourage people to speak up, especially if they don’t often voice their opinions. Take time to respect and acknowledge everybody’s opinion, and let people know that you value them.
Plan to Attend the upcoming Better Rivers Hookup Meeting and meet people you might want to share ideas with!
