Measuring Your Professional Influence in Accounting
As part of this UK Matters in Accounting podcast, we are giving you some bonus episodes on the topic of influence. What is influence? Is it important? How influential are you? You influence others more than you think. The ability to authentically make people think, act and speak in a certain way is a powerful currency in any environment.
Here at Accounting Influencers, we help amplify the brands, the messaging and the relationships of people who serve the accounting profession. You might be a qualified accountant in practice looking to get things done at work. For that you need credibility, a voice, a reputation. You could be part of the software industry or fintech ecosystem surrounding accountants, selling your products and services either directly into accountants and firms, or indirectly through them to their clients.
Influence is a big part of the mix. So in this bonus series for the Accounting Influencers Podcast Network, hosts Rob Brown and Martin Bissett discuss the role of influence. And over 12 bonus episodes in the next 4 weeks, you'll get a quick fire overview of the 10 key areas, pillars or components of influence.
By going to https://accountinginfluencers.com and taking the Accounting Influencer Test you can score your influence over these 10 categories. For free.
In this episode, "Measuring Your Professional Influence in Accounting", you'll hear valuable context on the importance of influencer in gaining the attention of peers and prospects. People follow leaders and influencers, even if they are introverts.
Influence is a powerful currency. It gets impossible things done and tough things done faster. It opens doors and closes sales. It creates advocacy and reputation. In the accounting and fintech world, strategic partnerships and high level referrals come from your ability to trade your influence for dollars, deals and celebrity status.
Take the test at https://accountinginfluencers.com and see how influential you really are. You'll also get some practical suggestions to increase your influence in your professional role.
