Building Your Leadership Influence (10181)

In today’s complex world, we rely more and more on collaboration and working groups to accomplish our objectives and get things done. Whether we are professionals, volunteers, or even managers, others expect us to move things forward without using formal authority.  But how do we build the leadership influence we need to succeed? In this workshop, we explore the factors that affect our ability to influence others, and different strategies that can help increase our influence. Building Your Leadership Influence includes practical exercises and skill-building activities. We focus on applying the concepts to real situations, including how to identify, select and implement effective strategies to influence others in positive ways. Through your active participation, you will walk away feeling more confident. You will return to work with practical ways to achieve alignment and collaboration. And you will increase your impact at work.
