A "recognized influencer" is someone who is looked upon to guide others in moving towards the end result because we’re respected, knowledgeable and authentic.
We've built trust, shown ourselves as collaborative and worked on our approach to people, conversations and problems in a positive and productive way with solid outcomes.
We might not be a formal leader. We can become a "recognized influencer". From individual contributors to new and existing leaders, we can become someone who is trusted and asked to provide real time contribution at a high level.
Today's business environment is moving at lightening speed. We are called upon to bring more than our basic job responsibilities to the workplace.
When we're seen as a recognized influencer, we build collaborative relationships in and out of our area, we're look upon for mentoring advice, we're ask to contribute our expertise and work related knowledge in areas that are not our responsibility.
People see us for who we truly are as a professional which may lead to a promotion, job offer or an increase in wages or bonus. We become memorable and top of mind.
