9. Using Your New PR Practices to Become... > What Is the Responsibility of the PR...

What Is the Responsibility of the PR Influencer and the Change Agent?

When you think about influence, there are so many different definitions and calculations. No one has said there’s a right way and a wrong way to view or build influence.
