About the Webinar
Motivating people toward a desired goal often requires more than position and power — it requires the art of persuasion. Whether you are an individual contributor or have a team of 20 direct reports, possessing the ability to influence colleagues at all levels of your organization can be a game-changer in your career.
An influential leader can affect the behavior of others in a particular direction. It’s not about commands — it’s about inspiring, persuading, and encouraging.
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 being an influential leader, 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.
