Building Influence in the Workplace
How to Gain and Retain Influence at Work
Palgrave Macmillan, 2010
The boss has the power, but you can be the most influential person at work.
Developing influence at work is a skill you can and must learn. British psychologist Aryanne Oade, a knowledgeable, practical teacher, presents case studies that demonstrate how to employ influencing techniques to sell your ideas and yourself to your colleagues. At the end of each chapter, the author asks you illuminating questions based on your own experience. While Oade’s contribution isn’t deep in new ideas, she does provide a good orientation, and her advice helps you consider other people’s perspectives. getAbstract recommends her insights to anyone who wants to boost their influence. Everyone who works with other people will find it helpful.
