What does likeability have to do with influence? Everything. For instance, when was the last time you left your child with someone you didn’t like? How many times do you buy from someone you despise? When did you follow a dislikeable person’s instructions? How much do you listen to a person who pretends to be[...]

We’ve all got to use to use them: our words. There’s no way anything would get done if we didn’t communicate at all and it’s comical to even imagine a business functioning where no one speaks or writes at all. So, of course, you use words to communicate, but have you ever stopped to think about the words you are using to communicate and how they affect the outcome of what you’re trying to say. Here are a few examples of what to say and what not to say when trying to persuade your peers or team on a particular subject.

DO NOT use negative words like can’t, don’t, won’t when presenting a topic (and, yes, I see the irony of putting this in the do not section).

Remember the days when success meant graduating from college, finding a stable job, starting at an entry level position and rising within the ranks, and retiring with a pension that supports a lifestyle you’ve become accustomed to? Sounds too good to be real – and it is. Gone are the days when you were rewarded[...]

If you’ve found any success in your career, chances are you’ve always been able to wield some sort of influence over people and you’ve likely kept your influence muscles well-honed over the years. But if you really want to wow upper level management, you’re going to need to pull out the influence “big guns” next time you’re in the board room.

When was the last time you swallowed what someone told you? Specifically, when “they” said you weren’t good enough or capable or too old? Did you accept it as gospel? Sadly, people buy into the belief that what society, their education or even their experience has taught them is the end-all. They begin to agree[...]

Yes, yes, yes, we’ve all heard it before: “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.” It’s the honest truth. While we’re technically the same species, it can be shocking to think that we come from the same planet, let alone genus. While men may be more forceful and overt about their wants and needs, women tend to be more suggestive and quiet about what they would like. Of course, this is a generalization, but it has been shown in studies that this is the case most of the time.

However, just because women may not be as outwardly aggressive as men, does not mean that women are the weaker of the sexes. Far from it! We have quite a few mental strengths that men might not possess and we should use them to our advantage.

Embrace Your Fears

by Karen Keller, Ph.D.

The longer I work in my field, the more often I experience how much damage fear can do to a person’s career or home life. I can see it coming a mile away, but usually it hits so hard that I’m powerless to do anything to help unless the person I’m working with is willing to face their own fears and embrace them.

Power: What Women Do Right

by Karen Keller, Ph.D.

I recently came to a realization the other day that we (including myself) spend a lot more time focusing on all of the possible negative outcomes of women getting power. Now, while I maintain that you always need to be careful with the power that you have, there is absolutely nothing negative about women in positions of power. In fact, I’d say it’s pretty darn awesome to see a lady with some real responsibility. So, what are all of the great things that we, as women, do with our power that we may overlook?
