When you are trying to influence others , guide someone , help someone in their path , you think “Why would he/she listen to me ?” .
Be A Leader !
Show them your accomplishments , your experience , your level of maturity , your confidence .
Once you have shown that you know things , they would want to listen because they’d know you will have something valuable to say .
Make others Feel Important !
When you make them feel important they will put more effort into things and listen to you carefully .
If they don’t think that you care for them they’d just think that you are using them to get work done , which you are not and it would defeat the whole purpose .
Motivate and Empower them !
You will gain more authority .
People would want to prove themselves .
They know that you will appreciate their efforts , acknowledge and recognise them and reward them !
Respect Others’ Opinions !
People have the right to have an opinion and a different perspective .
If you understand that , listen to them and then take action , they are far more likely to accept your decision .
When they know that they are being heard , they will hear you .
Show Sympathy !
Never scold someone when they make a mistake . Humans make mistake , we need to understand that .
You can say that even you have made similar mistakes , learned from them and corrected those to avoid making those mistakes in the future .
Once you sympathise , they will understand you more .
