As part of this Best Practice in Accounting podcast, we are giving you some bonus episodes on the topic of influence. What is influence? Is it important? How influential are you?
You influence others more than you think. The ability to authentically make people think, act and speak in a certain way is a powerful currency in any environment.
Here at Accounting Influencers, we help amplify the brands, the messaging and the relationships of people who serve the accounting profession. You might be a qualified accountant in practice looking to get things done at work. For that you need credibility, a voice, a reputation.
You could be part of the software industry or fintech ecosystem surrounding accountants, selling your products and services either directly into accountants and firms, or indirectly through them to their clients.
Influence is a big part of the mix. So in this bonus series for the Accounting Influencers Podcast Network, hosts Rob Brown and Martin Bissett discuss the role of influence. And over 12 bonus episodes in the next 4 weeks, you'll get a quick fire overview of the 10 key areas, pillars or components of influence.
In this episode, "The Vital Role of Character in Accounting Influence", you'll hear that character speaks to how likeable and trustworthy you are. Do you keep your promises and commitments? Are you easy to work with? Are you agreeable and reliable, or confrontational and a diva?
What are you like with relationships, partnerships, alliances and negotiations? Are you real and authentic, and even a bit vulnerable? Or do you have different faces/personalities for different people? Are you value driven and principled?
Take the test at https://accountinginfluencers.com and see how influential you really are. You'll also get some practical suggestions to increase your influence in your professional role.
