Introduction to Impact & Influence

It can be a challenge to strike the right tone to appear authoritative without being overbearing. Speaking with impact and influence is a learned behaviour, and mastering it requires understanding the middle ground between being aggressive (hostile or domineering) and passive (not assertive enough).
