Take a moment to reflect on your perception of Influence. What does “influence” mean to you? Is it the same for leadership, management, and employees? You may be thinking about past situations in which “influence” occurred. Now, think about the term “power”. What does “power” mean to you? Is it similar, yet different than “influence”? What about “politics” (within the scope of organizational politics) – what does the term “politics” mean to you? These are are thought provoking initial questions to think about before starting the discussion question. In your initial post, address the following questions: 

  1. Define influence.
  2. Briefly compare and contrast the leadership, management, and employee influence.
  3. Identify the five major components of influence and an area(s) of influence that you have or would like to have in your professional career. 
  4. Next, view Sinek (2014) Why good leaders make you feel safe TED Talk. Identify how the principles made in this TED Talk can apply to leadership influence.
