Salary Talk Podcast with Harrison Monarth by Salary_Talk published on 2012-02-22T16:24:11Z Leadership doesn’t have to be a top-down proposition. In fact, the best leaders influence those who are below and above them, as well as people external to the organization, such as customers and partners. This 360 degrees of influence is what separates the good leader from the great leader. Founder of the global executive coaching firm GuruMaker, Harrison Monarth is this week's Salary Talk guest and discusses his book "360 Degrees of Influence: Get Everyone to Follow Your Lead on Your Way to the Top." Monarth makes a living helping top figures in business and politics hone their influencing, communication, persuasion, impression management, and media skills. He teaches leaders how to operate without relying on spin or manipulation. Now, in 360 Degrees of Influence, Monarth provides everything you need to gain the trust and respect of those around you—no matter where they’re positioned in the organizational hierarchy—and expand your influence well beyond your immediate environment. Providing valuable insight into human emotion and behavior, Monarth reveals the secrets to becoming the most psychologically astute person in the room—so you can be the most influential leader in the room.
