Duration: 1 hour
Motivating people towards a desired goal often requires more than position and power—it requires an art of persuasion. Whether you have a team of 20 direct reports or are an individual contributor, possessing the ability to influence colleagues at all levels of your organization can be a career game-changer.
You may have an idea to sell, a process to adopt, a change to implement or an opportunity to pursue. Skillful influencing can align the efforts of others towards your objective, build commitment to the work, and expand the organization’s capacity to meet any challenges along the way.
This webinar will help you understand the critical components of influence, which include developing self-awareness, establishing common ground, and gaining others’ involvement. You will also learn how effective influence better enables individuals and organizations to build and sustain positive momentum and achieve successful outcomes.
At the end of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Articulate why influence is important
- Understand the key elements of effective influencing skills
- Begin assessing their current influencing capabilities and competencies
- Identify opportunities to develop more effective influencing skills
