Influence with a Point of View

What’s your point of view?

It’s not a “nice to have,” it’s a “need to have” – and let me tell you why:

It’s hard to argue with getting better results.

But don’t just take my word for it.

Recently, a self-proclaimed “Decker Super-Fan” (for reference – she’s taken Communicate to Influence 10 times!) was reflecting on each new team and each new company. Even after delivering 12 keynotes last year, she maintains, “This isn’t a main-stage skill. I finally learned in my board meetings and my management meetings that it’s not about agreeing with others or stroking egos, but the impact comes from delivering a strong point of view.”

Every time you open your mouth, you have an opportunity to persuade.

Change culture. Change your organization. Be actionable and move the ball forward.

Get better results. Have a point of view.
