Most of us have less formal authority than we need to carry out our responsibilities. Effective, innovative managers and professionals build on existing strengths in order to influence key stakeholders: bosses, peers, associates, customers, suppliers and staff.
In this workshop you will learn high-integrity techniques to:
• communicate and build commitment for your vision
• increase your understanding of your business partners’ needs
• balance advocacy with inquiry as a means of influence
• analyze and leverage existing relationships in order to get things done
• increase your contribution to your organization
• become a positive, powerful advocate for your unit
Meeting Notes: WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Managers, supervisors, team leaders, project managers, and other professionals who need to get work done through others
The meeting fee includes dinner and materials.
