7 Ways to Enhance Your Influence in a Virtual Workplace
When working from home or the office, there are still expectations to be reached, goals to be achieved, deadlines to be met, and deliverables to be completed. Understanding how to maintain and expand your office influence will help you accomplish these important objectives.
If you have a traditional office job, enhancing your influence will enhance your current job performance, position you for promotion, and accelerate your future career advancement. If you're a consultant or solo professional, you'll learn ways to become more influential in your client meetings and presentations.
