Whether you’re asking for a date or asking for a promotion, you need to know how to influence people.
Your ability to lead others will help you immensely in your personal, romantic and professional life.
Most shy guys struggle with this because they care too much about what other people think.
I know that from experience.
I used to struggle in any group setting because I felt like what I had to say wasn’t important.
It’s hard to be a person of influence if you don’t value your own opinion.
Contrary to what others believe, being a leader doesn’t mean you get to walk around and dish out orders.
Far from it.
A person of influence is someone who leads by example. It’s the person who’s able to convey his thoughts and ideas in a way that benefits not just himself, but other people as well.
If you want to learn how to develop leadership skills as a shy guy, the way you communicate yourself should attract, engage and encourage the people around you.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a potential business partner or a potential romantic partner, they need to get on board with your plan.
Here are my best tips to help you get started right away.
Share Your Vision
You can’t lead people if you don’t know where you’re going. If you want to become a leader, you need to provide a clear path to follow.
People also need to understand the value and importance of the goal is to them. Take the time to explain why and how your vision will benefit them in return.
Utilize Your Natural Strengths
A great leader knows he can’t do everything on his own. That’s why you need to know how to delegate task accordingly.
Because people have their own natural strengths and talents, it’s your responsibility to put them in environments and situations where they’re most likely to succeed.
Maintain A Positive Attitude
People are naturally drawn to leaders that exhibit positivity and optimism. To be an effective leader, you need to learn how to manage your emotions accordingly.
You’ll project externally what you feel internally. If you want to influence others, you need to influence yourself first.
Become A Role Model
Trust is one of the biggest reason why people will follow you. The best leaders practice what they preach. You can’t give what you don’t have.
Work on modelling the qualities that you would like to see in the people you lead.
Improve Yourself Continually
A great leader views himself as a student first rather than an expert. In order to improve, you need to not just be open, but asking for feedback. Small actions taken consistently lead to something big.
Aspire to get better in every way possible.
