Manage Your Influence
September 13, 2019
Hosted by Brian Smith and Mary Smith
This week, Brian is back with Mary to discuss managing personal and professional relationships. We spend about a third of our time with our team, meaning we come to develop a professional, and sometimes a personal, relationship with each of our team members. Navigating the fine line between a personal and professional relationship with someone can often prove to be difficult; this week, Brian and Mary give you tips on how to manage your personal and professional relationships through care, thought, and planning.

The I in Team Podcast
New shows weekly on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Our show expands, in depth, the philosophies in our book series, The I in Team Series. We discuss finding one’s own influence, using that influence in their life with their various teams, and building teams around them that enhance and positively increase influence. We hope to show you that you are important to the teams you influence and that by understanding your unique influence you will be able to positively contribute to the world around you. Your influence is the single greatest responsibility you have. We cover looking at our foundations, understanding our shortcomings, being a team member, and leading with influence.
We accomplish this goal by first laying a foundation for our philosophy and then building on that through interactions with guests that reinforce the lessons we wish to teach others. Listen for The I in Team Podcast, every week on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel.
