Virtual Session: Influencing Others – April 16
April 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$175
To get things done in organizations, you typically have to rely on the buy-in, commitment, support, and approval of other individuals. Whether it’s obtaining approval from your own manager to get additional resources for a particular project, or gaining commitment from a team of individuals over whom you have no direct authority, influencing others is a critical skill for success.
Influencing is most effective and productive when it’s done collaboratively. By fully understanding the individual(s) that you’re trying to influence and by bringing them into a dialogue, you’ll be able to move things forward while building strong relationships.
By the end of this session, you’ll be able to:
- Identify the characteristics of effective influencers.
- Strategize ways to increase your credibility.
- Communicate a range of benefits to create buy-in.
- Structure strategic influencing conversations.
