Are you consciously tuning into your conversation partner? What happens to your way of communicating when you feel pressured? Do you notice it when your conversation partner has disengaged in the conversation? Are you able to deal with that in a constructive way by restoring the connection? Are you talking with the other or to the other? If you know that your way of communicating has a big impact on your results, especially in a situation under pressure, how do you make sure to stay out of reactive behaviour?
What does inflencing mean to you? Is it about convincing the other that you are right? Or rather about listening as well, that your view and opinions are really being heard, resulting in openness for the other to consciously choose?
Does influencing mean sticking firmly to your conviction? Or are you also able, from your viewpoint, to be open to others and be influenced by them? What movement is possible there? To what extent is influencing about leading or maybe even seducing? Does it have to do with gaining acceptance? What about the intention behind your words?
All these aspects play a role in your ability to influence.
Is good teamwork a matter of agile individuals working on their own or does teamwork spring from agile individuals who have the ability to connect together?
How do you connect with others? How do you deal with disagreements? How do you listen to each other and engage with one another? What is your impact on others? How do you achieve your goals together? These are all themes that play an important role in the effectiveness of a team.
