Perception and Influence
Two Career Advancement Strategies Employed by the Most Successful Leaders 

In this presentation, Joel Garfinkle reveals two necessary qualities that all great leaders have and use. First, they create an extremely positive perception of themselves throughout the company. Secondly, they know how to exert influence both internally and externally.

Influence can’t happen unless you have established and sustained a positive perception in the workplace. Once you’ve established the appropriate level of perception, you will have gained a solid reputation and foundation of respect. Influence is now possible.

Perception and Influence produces valued employees and in-demand leaders capable of influencing decisions at every level of the organization.

Through practical advice, true-to-life examples, and action-oriented tips, audience members will learn how to create and become the elite performers who influence outcomes, contribute to major decisions, and drive change for the betterment of the company. When you become equipped with an ability to create positive perception and exert influence, you will become high-impact leaders who move the organization forward.
Employees who fully utilize Perception and Influence become more valuable to a company, as their level of production and their overall contributions enhance the company’s bottom-line performance.

Primary Issues Addressed

Improve Perception: As employees learn to manage and foster accurate perceptions of their performance and results, they can communicate true value and impact. Perception management brings talent to the frontline, identifying individuals and effectively utilizing them as valuable company assets.

Exert Influence: Employees of influence make key decisions inside organizations. They learn to engage, alter, and improve situations regardless of position or level of authority. To increase influence, people must develop five traits of all influential people: executive presence, solid reputation, the power to persuade, superior likeability, and enhanced skill sets.
