    An incredible post – and so much food for thought. Every PR pro should read this; from those just starting out…to see how they can grow their career…to veterans who may have become complacent. Very eye-opening!

    Thank you so much, Elissa! When it comes to influence, I think that we are focused on the numbers and what they reveal about our influence. But, if you think about it, you need to cultivate certain characteristics before you can even grow your community and influence your peers. I really appreciate your feedback 🙂

    I totally agree with ElissaPR! “Very eye-opening!” indeed!

    Thank you for revealing these main skills and qualities! I think they are vital for PR professionals too as leadership is on the job description. Reading this article I could position myself and see what a maximum score really means.

    Your article motivates me to fight for my dreams even harder!

    I love the idea of rating ourselves when it comes to influence. It gives those of us who set daily goals, some benchmarks and more goals to achieve!
    It might even be interesting (with some modifications) to share with our peers and ask them to rate us, in order to give us a more grounded perspective.

    Hi Lisa! Wow…I love the idea of having peers rate us. It’s an excellent way to stay grounded. I’m going to write that blog post and I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts. Thank you for your great feedback 🙂
