'Influence' the trend work of 2016... so let's keep it simple.
You want to impact others in your life? Your colleagues or employees at work? Your friends and family?
Then the words you choose matter and you better be in touch with how you show up with and manage your emotions. These are the two elements to master to become an effective influencer in communication
Emotions is what makes your words powerful and effectively received by others you are communicating with. The key here is that the emotions you exhibit are 'managed' emotions.
You don't need to drop bombs (high intense emotions) to get your expression across when a small firecracker (truthful relevant emotion) will do the job.
You also don't want to show up limp and disinterested or without a clear outcome. You won't look good in the eyes of the receiver and you will lose your effectiveness.
You need to have well chosen words in your mental index.
It would serve you to get familiar with a list of emotions and their definitions so you can reference in preparation for your communication.
Building your emotional words into a story that gets presented with your authentic managed emotion is influence at it's finest.
The impact comes from your story, your experiences, perspectives, feelings, successes, failures, where life exists, is your emotion!
Choose your words wisely!
