INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE AND CENTERS OF INFLUENCE
The Roper Organization studied influential people for 47 years. According to Tom Miller, Roper senior vice-president, the key element is activity. Being active in their communities both socially and politically builds their visibility, credibility, and their sphere of influence.
Further, the Roper studies found that the involvement of the center of influence sets them apart and establishes them as a role model. People trust them and actively seek their advice. They are not necessarily presidents of the biggest companies, organizations or clubs, but achievers who are charismatic, well-disciplined and well-respected.
A Center of Influence is someone who consistently sends you people who are Class-A prospects. Why?
– The Center of Influence is sold on you and/or what you are doing.
– He/she knows you as a person of integrity and character.
– They know you will only be involved in something that’s good, beneficial, and needed.
