How to Build up Influence in an Organization?

🔥NEW I read the summary of the Model of Personal Power (Hagberg) with interest.

Recently I began to have a keen interest in the topic of "influence". To gain influence and to help improving the company, new employees (managers) need an opportunity or occasion to be identified by the company's (top) management.
However, such opportunities do not come out of thin air. What kind of opportunities are most suitable?

If there is no special opportunity, how can employees still acquire and grow personal influence within their organization? What methods exist to help employees (managers) expand their influence in the organization?

Thank you for your help and suggestions.
