Increase Your Influence With This Question


If you want to increase your influence and impact, practice asking this question for one week: “How can I help you succeed?” I adopted this practice several years ago and encourage my clients to test it as well. 

In addition to increasing influence and impact, I typically experience the following results:

  • It deepens the conversation and, by extension, the relationship.
  • People are typically surprised and appreciative.
  • People are generally thoughtful with their request. For example “Hold me accountable for doing x by y date.” vs. “Please do my laundry for a week.”
  • It helps people become more reflective and precise with the type of assistance that can help them achieve their goals.
  • It begins to set the norm for a more collaborative environment.

Give it a try for 1-week and let me know your results.
