We all want to achieve more in our career goals. Whether that comes from striking out on our own or by climbing the corporate ladder, being influential with the people you encounter can help significantly in achieving your goals.
Developing expertise and listening skills can be extremely helpful, but I've found connection building can be the make or break action you take in expanding your sphere of influence. Introductions and, even more so, reconnections make it far easier to get your voice heard and name mentioned at the right times.
Have you been successful at expanding your influence at work? If so, tell me how in the comments.
