"Often, people have a big goal or dream and they really believe that they want it, but they won't take any action toward it. A great question to ask is: 'Do you feel like you know the steps to accomplish that?' If they don't, they will not act. If they do, they will proceed. This is one of the most important aspects of influence when you're leading other people."

In this episode, learn critical skills to lead and guide others out of frustration and back into harmony. Whether you're leading a team or dealing with a loved one, these proven tactics can be a true game-changer in all areas of your life! While honing in on your influence, consider this:

"Have you ever gotten frustrated when someone wasn't acting like themselves? Try asking them: 'Hey, I've noticed you don't seem like yourself. Are you okay? Is there anything I can do to help?' This is one of the most powerful questions we can ask. Often, they're acting this way because something is going on; usually, they're feeling a lack of control, and this question allows them to check in with themselves and realize they're out of harmony with who they truly are."
