In our roles at work, we are tasked with taking on an informal leadership role when assigned as the unofficial project manager.  As such, we are likely directing others who don’t report to us, which can pose many challenges. Participants will delve into their leadership challenges and gain an understanding of the most effective strategies to effectively influence and lead—even when they do not have direct authority.

In this session, participants will:

  • Define what influence means
  • Walk through three tips to become more influential
  • Determine your influential style

Bonus Handout: Participant Resource Guide

Hot Tip: Be engaging. When someone enters your space for a quick chat, give them your undivided attention.  When you take the time to listen to their inquiry, they feel acknowledged and respected.  When it’s your turn to stop by their desk to make a request, they will remember how you treated them and should return the favor in kind.
