Influential people make a memorable first impression and they always wear well over time. Why? Their concern for people is real, and it goes deeper than any transaction. Ken Blanchard said it best, “Great leadership is about influence not authority”. People will come to value you as much and sometimes more than any product or service.

Tip: In order to become a person of influence, it is incumbent upon you tell the truth, follow up and be genuinely as concerned as they are about their goals and objectives.

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another-George Eliot
