It always fascinates me the many different ways that you can actually achieve things in business. So many leaders, so many styles. Along with that, there are so many variables, systems, machines and the biggest variable of all, the people. And what do you need to do with variables? Eradicate or Mitigate them as much as possible!

Enter Influence!

How should you influence?

And should influence be the Goal?
