Rarely is our work done in a silo. While one may be the lead contributor on a project, there are almost always multiple stakeholders and other employees impacted by the work. Often, those for whom you need support are not people who work for you but employees in another department, your manager, a director in another business unit, or any number of people throughout the organization.

In this 2-hour session, we will review tried-and-true practices for influencing others and engaging them to rally around your priorities.

July's Discussion:
Influence Without Authority


“It is an illusion that once upon a time managers could make their direct reports do whatever was needed. Nobody has ever had enough authority— they never have and never will. Organizational life is too complicated for that.”
― Allan R. Cohen
