Talk: Influence Without Affluence: The Power of Integrity and Authenticity

Growth in corporate ladder levels is directly based on how much one is able to influence and impact the products and lead the industry. Achieving influence is hard. Even harder is sustaining such influence. History shows that even highly influential people -- be they Presidents, sports stars, CEOs, religious leaders -- could fail over time. This suggests that the ability to influence is not merely an external skill or a one-off tactics to achieve some immediate result. Rather it is a long-term investment in one's own integrity and a conscious effort to build a credible network through which effective influence can be achieved.
