Influencing Without Authority

A key skill relevant to leaders at all levels is the ability to positively influence people in such a way that others follow and act willingly —as opposed to complying because of the authority factor.   Both an art and a key business asset, influence is essential in all aspects of life, and constantly at play in the workplace.

You may not think of yourself as a salesperson. However, if your role is to influence others in a significant way you need to employ many of the same skills. It is not complicated, but takes mindfulness and careful thought, particularly when under stress and pressure.

This program explores day to day influencing at the workplace, emphasizing (1) the concept of exchange, (2) knowing your stakeholders, (3) knowing your own goals, (4) building relationships and (5) the process of influencing within the workplace.
