Your Project Success Depends on Your Ability to Influence
People who are influential know how to get work done. In today’s volatile and rapidly changing environment, work doesn’t get accomplished through authority, it gets done through influence. Whether you’re a rising senior executive or front-end project manager, knowing how to influence is critical to success.
This live webinar, How to Grow Your Influence in a Complex, Networked World
, will discuss how influence is not simply the product of personal charisma or charm, but instead, a skill that can be learned. Leaders can learn how to establish credibility, build trust, and effectively influence stakeholders, even if they lack the formal authority to make demands on resources. Join this webinar on Wednesday, June 27, at 11 a.m. ET/4 p.m. BST, to learn:
- What influence is
- What makes some people more influential than others
- The behavior that drives influential people
- How to practice these principles for immediate effect
By the end of the hour, you will better understand the core principles and practices of leaders who know how to get work done through influence and persuasion—whether managing up, down, across, or diagonally—within organizations.
