Tips & tricks: How to spot your informal influencers

Harness the power of your informal influencers.

In all organisations and in every team, you’ll find informal influencers; colleagues whose ability to influence opinion, positively or otherwise, belies their position on the organisational chart.

Partnering with these people can help your messages become more real, more relevant and indeed increase their reach.

To help achieve your communication objectives, these people need to become your new best friends. So how do you recognise them?

Close your eyes and vision the people who ‘hold court’ in meetings, are popular lunch partners and have huge networks. You can see their faces and you know their names. Now seek their counsel, share ideas with them, co-create the best ways to get your point across – and they’ll help you deliver success.
