Brian Smith, PhD and Mary Griffin
In Individual Influence, authors Brian Smith, PhD and Mary Griffin make a persuasive case that even a company or team of individual players is still an "Individual" at its core-expressing the collective influence of all those who play a role in it. Thus, there is not just one "I" in team, but many.
Demonstrated through real-life experience working with and leading teams, the authors cover many transformative concepts, including:
"A colorful and conversational manual that helps you—personally and professionally—to better assess yourself and to build richer relationships with others."
- Kirkus Review
"Individual Influence is not just a book, it's a way of finding yourself and radiating that newfound energy and awareness into all of your relationships. The book is not only insightful and full of wisdom, it's also practical and witty. It gives you the tools to apply to yourself and those you work or spend time with. A must read for any leader looking to level up."
- Billy Banks, Professor of Entrepreneurship at Northwestern University, Co-founder at ProHabits, former Founder & CEO at Reach360 and M-Tec
"Individual Influence is not a book for leaders who are lost, but for those who recognize that there is profound value to be found within each individual member of their team. The wisdom is tangible, reflective and profoundly relevant for today's business leader."
- David Avrin, author of Why Customers Leave (and How to Win Them Back)
"In Individual Influence, you get the same kind of connection to making your life better as we all learned in the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People or the works of Napoleon Hill. This book is like a personal productivity consultant you can carry on the airplane with you. The authors are brilliant businesspeople that have distilled their time and energy into a self-guided tool for improving your chances for success in your work on as well as in your business. "Being present is something that you can learn..." is my favorite from takeaway from Individual Influence. Do yourself a favor to capture another personal advantage, read this book today."
