Influence Others without Authority I
Influence in projects and matrix organisations
Influencing employees and colleagues to share common goals and approaches is a key challenge for anyone who wants to make a difference. Especially, when a project or process involves change, there is often resistance. Often, neither top management approval nor good arguments are enough to overcome resistance. More is needed to win over those involved: personal relationships, trust and conviction.
This programme teaches the best ideas and techniques of positive influence. It enables participants to strengthen their leadership skills and bring about positive change in their teams and organizations.
