How to Gain Influence – the hard way
April 12, 2012 2 Comments
Popularity does not (necessarily) indicate influence.
Numbers do not (necessarily) indicate influence.
Here’s how influence is earned:
- Do a great job.
- Grow in both knowledge and wisdom.
- Care about people.
- Aspire to something big and worthwhile, and inspire others toward it.
Social media changes nothing except to give one more false measure of influence. There is no shortcut. The squash grows (and fades) quickly. The oak is in it for the long haul.
