Feel like you're playing the game a little bit at work
Effective communication and influence increases your effectiveness and amplifies your work (as well as other people’s).
Managing your reputation sets the stage for future effectiveness.
Good communication and influence brings other people and teams along with you.
Don’t play politics, though. Certainly don’t manipulate, or focus on who you know (versus what you’re doing).
Influence things for good. Make good decisions that are aligned with your team and organization goals. Above all else, elevate others.
What are your favorite resources for being strategic, communicating effectively, etc?
Some of mine are
The Pyramid Principle, by Barbara Minto.
Flawless Consulting, By Peter Block.
Much of Will Larson’s writing, such as Meeting People and Hard to Work With.
