The Influencing Option

by Libby Wagner

In a profit culture, Influencing is always better than commanding or ordering people. Winning your team over is better than ordering them. The Influencing Option actually helps leaders talk to people via a language and philosophy that works for the long-term, supports integrity and drives commitment. And all without relying on conflict, heavy-handed authority or guilt. In fact, candor and specificity are among its guiding lights. With a loss of faith in leaders and gross violations of ethical conduct today we need to lead with integrity and develop a commitment culture that is at once transparent, participatory and sustainable. Influencing as a leadership/management strategy fills this need to drive a profit culture.

Confronting Without Guilt or Conflict

by Bob Weyant

Often, when someone’s behavior or performance causes us a problem, we hesitate to confront the issue directly for fear of making the relationship worse. If we perceive that the other person’s reaction may be emotional or angry, we may even go to great lengths to avoid the confrontation. The issue not only does not get resolved, but we carry the stress and pain. If we confront, we must be willing to pay the price of potential conflict and negative consequences. If we choose not to confront, we must be willing to pay the price of accepting the situation.What a dilemma! — Unless there is a better option to be able to confront in a way that lessens the risk of conflict!
