EXECUTIVE EDUCATION | Harnessing the Power of Influence and Persuasion
Leaders who move the meter understand the behavior science around influence. They authentically and effectively shape the opinions of peers, stakeholders, clients, and direct reports. Without influence, you cannot be successful in advancing the businesses, organizations, and people you serve. During this interactive two half-day session, you will learn how to more effectively persuade others while exploring multiple dimensions of power and political agility. Discussions and activities will include a focus on the state of your internal and external networks. You will leave the session with practical tools for building your influence across your organization.
What You Will Learn
Those in attendance will learn that in order to influence and persuade others:
Solidifying trust must be a primary focus
Your network must be defined, cohesive, and flourishing
You must practice the law of reciprocity
The four keys to the Necessary Art of Persuasion must be leveraged
Cultural intelligence must be developed
