    Brian Smith - Positive Influence - A New Direction with Coach Jay Izso

    Put the “I” in Team…Positive Influence

    Brian Smith, Ph.D. Positive Influence - Be the "I" in Team - A New Direction with Coach Jay IzsoMost all of us have heard the saying there is no “I” in team. Well, the reality is there is no “we” either.

    But maybe if we saw the “I” as “Influence” we may have a different perspective. Because we all have influence, and since you are part of a team members who also are “influencers”, then perhaps there is an “I” in team after all.

    The fact, before we were born, we have influenced others. But for many of us we don’t think about the influential impact we do have on others.

    What is more often do not know what we can do to enhance our influence and create a more successful environment for others through our influence.

    In this episode of A New Direction Brian Smith Ph.D. walks us through his latest book “Positive Influence: Be the “I” in Team” to help us use our influence to positively impact others. It will be a growth moment for all of us!

    Positive Influence: The I in Team Series, Book 2Dr. Brian Smith’s Book, “Positive Influence: Be the I in Team” is a practical read that you can start acting on right now.

    This book opens us up to the fact that we are all influencers.  And we have a responsibility to that fact we are influencing at all times.

    Further, the book explores the traits that it takes to be a positive influencer, as well as the pitfalls that can inhibit or hurt our influence.

    We all need to wake up to the fact that what we do and say matters.  But we also need to wake up to the idea that how we respond to whatever is said or done to us as an influencer equally matters.

    We need to be aware of not only what we say, or write, but how we present ourselves in everyday life.

    We need to be better communicators, better listeners, and be more aware of how our audience is responding to us and our message.

    The bottom line as an influencer is this:  It’s not about leading followers but influencing others.

    We need to put on humility, be ready to take the “high road”, which is not the most popular position to be in and put others ahead of ourselves.

    For it is then, and only then will we be at our best to be a Positive Influence the world around us.
