Influencing Coworkers Is Not About Flirting
Guy Kawasaki, Best-selling Author of Enchantment and Dr. Karen Keller, Influence Expert, Discuss Women and Wielding the Art of Influence in new podcast series, “Powerful Influencers”
(Fort Wayne IN) April 20, 2011 – Enchanting one’s coworkers has nothing to do with flirting, exposing cleavage or otherwise engaging in borderline sexual behavior. It does mean becoming more likeable, trustworthy and having a great cause, according to Guy Kawasaki, author of Enchantment.
In her new podcast series, Powerful Influencers, Dr. Karen Keller, influence expert, digs deep with Kawasaki into how women can more effectively use the art of influence so they stop feeling like invisible women and start becoming more powerful.
In Powerful Influencers first installment, Kawasaki talks candidly, offering tips for becoming more likeable and trustworthy, and rants about various companies who he feels seem to go out of their way to disenchant their customers.
Says Keller, “Talking with Guy was a breath of fresh air. He genuinely believes that women are powerful, but it’s up to us to claim our power. His willingness to share his own struggles and vulnerabilities on his road to becoming a master enchanter is very enlightening.”
The series’ first installment with Kawasaki is broken into five daily “short, sweet and swallowable” sound bytes and is available at no charge. Future installments will feature other notable powerful influencers as an exclusive benefit to members of Keller’s Working Woman’s Coaching Program
“The outstanding response to Guy’s interview clearly shows how hungry women are for pragmatic information to help them develop their influencing skills. Often many women think flirting helps them become more influential at work. Nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of flirting, Guy speaks passionately about two simple things you can do every day to become more influential,” stated Keller. “He goes beyond information to inspire women. Guy speaks candidly and as you listen, you come to realize just how much he supports women.”
