Expanding Influence without Authority
Do you ever feel short of influence and power?
On projects we often need to exert influence when we have limited or no authority. We are called to motivate action and contribution from employees who are not direct reports, provide vision that guides our team and relationship to other teams, manage conflicts and cultivate high levels of stakeholder buy-in and adoption. Our influence can make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful project outcome, not to mention increase our comfort along the way.
Communication is the key to building and exercising influence. Communication skills are often under-taught, under-considered, yet they are the core of our role as project manager. In this session we will focus on real-world scenarios and explore techniques and strategies for expanding influence through the power of communication!
