Welcome to Episode 13 of Black Woman Leading, the podcast!  In this solo episode, we explore the topic of ‘Strengthening Your Influence in the Workplace.’

As Black women, we are natural influencers.  From our families and communities, to popular culture, to beauty and fashion, to politics and so on…. we often set the tone as real tastemakers. And this extends into our roles as workplace leaders as well.  

 

To make sure we are on the same page, here is what we mean by “influence” in this episode: 

Influence is the ability to shape behaviors and opinions of others without force or coercion and with the goal of attaining a win-win outcome for all parties involved.  Influence is about driving action and results and is an important tool for a leader.

 

Get out a pen and paper and use this episode as a time of reflection as Laura shares the components of influence and insights on how you can strengthen your influence for strategic impact in the workplace.
