Influencing Without Authority
Why do today’s successful professionals NEED influencing without authority skills? The answer is quite straightforward: someone may not report to you, but you need their help to get a project done. This is a common challenge in most organizations across the globe. Truly effective managers and executives use influencing skills to achieve results, regardless of their positional power within the organization or team structure.
This workshop is highly interactive and will provide you with key skills for getting things done whether or not you are in charge. You will improve your ability to manage “up,” get agreement from peers and motivate reports that will enable you to work more effectively in project and cross-functional teams. This session involves small group discussions, practical case studies, short role-playing exercises and opportunities to gain perspective from best practice sharing. Participants will be given an overview of power and influence as well as practical skills that can be implemented in their work place. In addition, attendees will identify types of influence, recognize the motivations of others, and develop a strategy for influencing others.
Who Should Attend?
- Project leaders, individual contributors, collaboration participants, and others who want to learn strategies to improve their ability to get things done
- Leaders and managers who want to gain new strategies for getting those below them to act without having to “command” them
- Technical experts who require the skills of influencing to achieve “buy-in” from non-technical colleagues or customers
