ACTIVITY: Influence & Persuasion


Choose to flex this skill to become stronger and turn it into a habit. Consider one or more of these activities:

  • Who are the gatekeepers and influencers in your organization? Reach out to begin to build a relationship and trust.
  • Who would you like to influence? Think about which “currencies” might be most effective (e.g., inspiration, exchange of tasks, recognition, belonging, gratitude).
  • Who is the most influential and persuasive person you know? Reach out and ask them for advice.


After completing this activity, consider leaving a reflection in the LEADx app using the Coaching Plan Activity “Reflect” button.
