FROM PERSON OF INFLUENCE TO THOUGHT LEADER
By Tom Sponsel, CPA/ABV, CFF
A person of influence within a company is like a great basketball player, inspiring their team members to bring their A-game to the court. Like Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, they made even the shortest member of the team feel like they could soar up to the hoop and score a slam dunk. Their influence makes everyone better!
A person of influence isn't afraid to speak up and add to the long-term vision for the business. In staff meetings, they're the ones pitching the exciting, innovative, big-picture ideas. They're constantly networking, gaining knowledge from others, keeping up with the latest trends and current events, and using that info to shake up the culture of their company. They challenge the team to stretch themselves and grow.
