Influencing Current, And Future Partners.

In matrix positions you are either influencing a current partner (and through this influence opportunity have a chance to develop the partnership to the next level or leverage the current state of the partnership) or you are influencing someone who may well be a partner in the future. Influence in matrix roles rarely happens in isolation—it usually isn’t the first or last interaction with the person you are trying to influence. What that means is that your level of influence starts well before you jot a few persuasive ideas down on paper or put together a couple of compelling PowerPoint slides. It also means that how you handle the opportunity to influence impacts not only the issue at hand but also your partnership and future influence prospects.
