Business Management Authority – Episode #74

by Richard Wilson on July 29, 2011

The following video is borrowed from our platform and was originally recorded for our business management training program.  Becoming an authority can lead to great success within your business and understanding the psychological principle of authority will help you find ways to become that authority.  In this video, I explain what it means to be an authority, the psychology behind authority and ways that you can use this psychological principle in your business management

Video Transcript/Summary: The strategies and tips provided within this video module include:

  1. Scientific studies have shown that, all else equal, people are more willing to work with individuals that they perceive as an authority.
  2. One way to boost your authority is through education.  Many business managers already have a college degree, but what continuing education have you completed?  Have you completed a master’s program, a certification or training program, or attended conferences.
  3. Another way is to dress more formally.  This sends a signal to your peers and employees that you are a business manager and lets them know that you are more authoritative.
  4. You should also consider writing a book.  This will impress your peers, your boss and others in your field.
  5. These three techniques will help you gain a reputation as an authority.

If you are looking to become a more powerful and effective business manager, you need to work on growing your authority.  Constantly be seeking out ways to improve your authority and demonstrate that you should be respected as an authority in your business area.

Thanks for joining us, and I will see you again soon,
