7 steps to successfully influencing people Hult Blog

This article was written by Mike Brent and Fiona Dent and originally published on November 20, 2015 on  www.ashridge.org.uk/insights Influencing and persuading are two of the most important skills for effectiveness in both business and your personal life – whether it’s persuading the board to adopt your latest idea or encouraging a child to tidy their room. We all tend to fall naturally into one of four influencing styles – collaborative, inspirational, directive or persuasive/reasoning. A collaborative approach can be effective when you need input from others to reach a satisfactory outcome, while an inspirational style works well when you need to engage people’s emotions and feelings in order to get them involved with your issue. Crisis or time-sensitive situations call for a directive approach, while persuasive reasoning can be useful when you know there is a ‘right’ answer to an issue and you can demonstrate why by putting forward a rational, well thought through case. Being aware of your preferred style – and having the ability to call on other approaches when the situation demands it – is the key to success. But it is also important to be able to see things from the other side – and to understand how people like to be influenced. These are the seven key factors you need to take into account when you are trying to get your ideas across, or bring someone around to your preferred approach or point of view. 1. Involve people People want to feel that their perspective on your issue is being listened to and understood and that there is a mutual respect, honesty and openness in the relationship. They want to know that they are genuinely being consulted and that their contribution will be taken on board, recognised and will add value. 2. Demonstrate confidence People like to see and feel influencers demonstrating energy, authority and conviction about their topic. Show confidence in the way you present your issues and ideas, and it will inspire others and encourage them to get involved and stimulate buy-in. Make sure you recognise that others may well add value to an already good idea. 3. Establish credibility Having a good track record of success and being able to demonstrate knowledge in your topic will help you to establish your credibility and reputation, signifying that you are authentic and genuine in your attempts to get others on board with you. 4. Be ‘likeable’ Show appreciation of others by developing rapport and building a relationship that is mutually beneficial and based on likeability. Being liked is really important. People are more willing to listen to you if they already have a positive relationship with you. 5. Provide evidence Be upfront with your facts and make sure you share data that is well researched. Help people to understand the rationale behind the issue and take care to show your reasoning. People need to understand where the issue fits and what the end goal is. 6. Be articulate Be clear, articulate and concise. People want short, sharp explanations, and waffling certainly won’t be appreciated. Being straight with people, getting to the point and indicating your goals are all welcome traits when it comes to influencing others. 7. Show passion Show passion in your ideas. If you are trying to influence others a degree of passion and energy behind the idea will indicate self-belief and confidence in your issue. This is a vital component for influencing and leading at any level. If you would like to find out more about Hults business programs,  download a brochure here.

The Department Of Children And Families - 1210 Words

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) is a strength-based agency that works with several different types of families and situations. The department works diligently to ensure that children are protected from neglect and/or abuse. As an intern at the Cape and island’s office, a majority of our cases involve substance use issues. When parents are using substances, this is a form of neglect as well as abuse depending on the scenario.

Father needs to support mother’s recovery, as well as cooperate with the department. The family’s stre ngths are their support system and ability to work diligently as a family. Mother has a natural nurturing trait to her baby and the parents have a strong bond tied to their daughter. Parents and foster parent (grandmother) have worked very well with the department. Grandmother has maintained excellent boundaries and has reported to us weekly on how well visits have been. Parents have been very cooperative and both parents receive two drug screens weekly.

Father especially angry with the department and did not understand why he couldn’t keep his daughter since mother had the drug issue. I realized how difficult it would be to build rapport with them after removing their child. I ensured them that I was there to help; I was very empathic and showed them that I cared about their case.

Even to this day, psychology still debates over the nature vs. nurture issue. The Greek philosopher, Plato, supposed that individuals inher it character and intelligence and that certain ideas are natural. Aristotle opposed that there is nothing in the mind that does not first come through the senses. Charles Darwin theory of natural selection added to the nature side of the debate that nature plays a role in what is already embodied in us. (Myers, 2014, p. 5-6) The nature vs. nurture issue relates to the theme of this article because nature and nurture both play a role in an individual developing an eating disorder. The nature side of the eating disorder is an individual can inherit an eating disorder from a parent, or grandparent. Whether it’s the same eating disorder or not, an individual can develop one of the eating disorders if an older relative had one. The nurture side of the eating disorder is society’s idea of a perfect body. Their idea of a perfect body is skinny and that makes young women and men feel insecure about their body and they soon develop an eating disorder. In addition to the environment being an influence on individuals developing an eating disorder, eating disorders also have biological causes. According to Weir (2016), an important feature of the disorders is the faulty reward processing system. The process guides the eating behaviors.

Since, Phinaes life the research has been able to uncover the many miracles on how his life changed on that fatal day which changed his life forever. Phineas Gage The forebrain plays a significant part in cognitive functions. It is also the anterior and largest portion of the brain. The forebrain includes the central hemispheres, that includes the limbic system, thalamus, hypothalamus and the callosum. Each of the hemispheres are divided into four lobes. Frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal are the four lobes. The forebrain controls cognitive functioning.The cognitive functions are: sensory and motor function, temperature regulating, reproductive, eating, sleeping, and displays emotions. In 1848 an unforeseen accident happen when Phineas Gage was preparing an explosive hole that required the use of a tamping iron. The tamper iron hit the rock causing a spark to ignited the explosive power and sent the tamper iron though the cheek bone on the left side and exited through the top of the head and into the air landing 30 feet away. We will write a custom essay sample on Phineas Gage or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page How might this affect his cognitive functioning? Phineas GagePhineas Gage would not know till months and years later what damage was done to his brain and how it would affect his cognitive functioning. John Martin Harlow was the attending physician that cleaned Gages wounds by removing small bone fragments and replaced the large fragments of the skull that remained but where displaced. He covered the wound by placing straps on Gages head and a wet compress on the opening. The wound was left open to drain. A few days later Gages brain became infected and Maslow drained pus from the abscess under the scalp. Haslow, described the iron as entering the cranium, passing through the anterior left lob of the cerebrum, and exited in the medial line, at the junction of the coronal and sagittal sutures, lacerating the longitudinal sinus, fracturing the parietal and frontal bones extensively, breaking up portions of the brain, and protruding the globe of the left eye from its socket (Scienceblogs. com,MO,2007). By January 1849 everyone could see a change in Phineas behavior. Friends where stating that he was not the Phineas that they had known in the past.His injury had changed him to be irreverent, indulging at times in gross profanity, impatient, would not except advise, could not follow through on plans. With this happening he could not have his job back on the railroad construction crew. Cognitive changes in Phineas Gage With the injury Gage had with the iron precising and going through the brain there had to be some cognitive change in the areas that Haslow described. These areas of the brain that would be affected would be the cerebral cortex lobes that are the frontal lobe that is involved with decision-making, problem solving, and planning.The parietal lobe that receives and processes sensory information and the temporal lobe that is involved with emotional responses, memory, and speech. Also effected would parts of the limbic system structure to include the amygdala which involves emotional responses and memory, along with the substantia nigra that helps to control voluntary movement and regulates mood(brianexplorer. org/forebrain). Conclusion The study of the human brain has come so far since the accident that happen at the railroad site in 1848 with Phineas Gage.Studies have shown how the different parts of the brain is divided and how each part works in different ways as far as cognitive functioning. Parts of the cerebral cortex lobes: controls vision, color, emotions, memory and speech. While parts of the limbic system is also involved with emotional responses sensory input concerning emotions, and memory. the part of the brain that was damaged also produced epilepsy where there was an abnormal bust of electrical signals that interrupts the normal electrical brain functions.
