Wondering How to Influence Your Boss, Peers, and Colleagues? Help Is At Hand.

The ability to influence others without authority is within your reach, but first you have to understand the factors that lead to being viewed as a person with influence and commit to cultivating traits and skills within yourself that will position you as someone who can influence others.

Join Mary White in this riveting session, where you will get practical tips and suggestions to help master your communication skills and mindset necessary to develop the ability to effectively influence without authority. People who are able to influence without authority are in a unique position to distinguish themselves as outstanding employees, laying the groundwork for success now and into the future. Those with strong abilities in this area thrive in a team environment, cultivate positive relationships with co-workers and clients, are able to elicit support and assistance from co-workers and other professional contacts and are generally seen as the best and the brightest in any workplace – assuming that their performance is also in line.

Developing the ability to influence others can have a powerful, positive impact on your professional success, regardless of your career stage or responsibilities. Employees at every level can benefit from mastering the art of influencing people over whom they do not hold any direct power or decision making authority, whether or not they hold supervisory positions. Those who are in managerial positions are well served by cultivating strong skills when it comes to influencing without authority, because the ability to exert interpersonal influence with your team, without having to resort to the formal authority of your position, is an important key to being viewed as an effective leader.

In this 60-minute session, you will learn:

  • How developing the ability to influence others without authority can have a significant, positive impact on career success
  • From where the knowledge of influence comes from (as in why some people have it and some don’t)
  • Specific steps you can take to work on cultivating the skills that lead to influence
  • Specific behaviors that impede your ability to be viewed as people with influence
