"Interesting, readable and practical - everything I want from this type of book." "A brand new take on influencing." "Thought provoking and extremely helpful." "This book was a revelation." "Completely changed the way I see influencing - I now believe that I can grow and develop my ability to influence by concentrating on these seven traits." "Very readable book which has changed my perspective on influencing. I always thought of it as a set of tools and techniques but the idea of becoming more influential is much more interesting. This book makes that idea feel possible". "I liked the whole concept of developing the traits of influential people and really liked the way they were presented. I enjoyed the exercises and have started to influence people in different ways as a result. Thank you for the ideas." It has made me realize that perhaps I have put too much effort into influencing external clients and stakeholders and not enough time trying to be influential with my own staff!!" "I quickly realised that, influencing is a much broader topic than I had imagined. I gained from it an understanding that I stand a better chance of maximizing my effectiveness if I play to my own strengths, rather than trying to meet other's expectations of me." "Most importantly, I learnt that some of the influencing I see employed by others is really manipulations and not only is it not necessary but it can in fact be counterproductive to subscribe to this method. It was very reassuring to hear that I don't have to become someone I'm not in order to extend my influence!"
