- Let's experiment with these power categories.…In the exercise file called Practice Exercises…write down three or four recent times…when someone has influenced you…to take a certain action.…Now let's consider the possible reasons…for your willingness to be influenced.…Check mark all that apply.…Check legitimate if the sender has a certain title…or position that you responded to.…Reward if the sender could reward you.…
Coercive if you were worried…that the person would punish you…or make life difficult…if you failed to comply.…Expert if you were influenced…because the sender really knows her stuff.…Referent if there is just something about this person…that resonates with you…and earned your trust.…Now return to your communication action plan…and start identifying the best senders…for each of your receivers.…
Who are the most influential messengers…for your project.…
- Who is the receiver of the message?
- Who would be the best sender?
