#75 Flexibility & Influence

A trap we fall into is believing that influence builds with every victory. Every time you get your way, it sets the stage for the next From “win.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Successive wins, while they feel great at the time, don’t always set you up for long-term success because your From “winning” may actually be inflexibility.

#74 Flexibility & Influence

When you become inflexible, your partners start avoiding you, bringing you in only when absolutely necessary (and usually at the last minute.) What they bring you in on is very narrow, and without their broader perspective (more on that in the next chapter), your influence is limited to small tactical From “yes/no” requests.
