Based on recent research by the authors of the New York Times bestseller Break Your Own Rules this book begins with the premise that when it comes to political savvy, what works for men on the job won’t work for women.

Authors, Kathryn Heath, Jill Flynn, Mary Davis Holt and Dian Faison make success far less complex, helping women overcome entrenched resistance to their ideas, create their own access points to power and attract followers in a way that works for them.

In our book, The Influence Effect, we explore the Big 5 strategies for gaining influence:

  1. The Power of the Informal
  2. Relationship Maps
  3. Scenario Thinking
  4. Influence Loops
  5. Momentum

Illustrated with dozens of engaging, real stores culled from the authors’ many years of coaching experience. The Influence Effect moves women past the politics problem and offers a new path to power. Actually, it’s more than a path — it’s a runway – it frees women to take off in their careers on their own terms
