Powerful leadership will be essential as businesses and organizations continue to transform into a more interconnected, interdependent, global workplace during the “new normal” of 2022. That’s because leaders can no longer lead solely by the power of their authority or position. They need the personal power of influence - the ability to positively impact the actions, behavior, opinions of, not just their direct reports, but all stakeholders to achieve targeted results.
One of the most important determinants of leadership effectiveness is success in influencing people and teams. If your leaders and managers don’t have influence, they will have difficulty leading others and implementing the goals and strategies of your organization.
Therefore, it is crucial that all your leaders - whatever their level - understand the range of influence techniques they can use, know when and how to use them, as well as build their personal power base so that they can play a greater role in contributing to the company’s success.
Powerful Leadership is a practical webinar that will give participants new ways to look at the dynamics of personal power, politics, and influence as well as providing then with a wide array to tactics for motivating and inspiring others no matter what their level or area of responsibility.
Why you should Attend:
Do you know how to influence others to get them to say yes? Do you know how to promote your team and self to create more visibility for the work you’re doing? Do you know how to develop your personal power that is key to advancing your leadership career?
Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager said, “The key to leadership is influence, not authority." That’s why it’s important to have influencing skills as part of your professional portfolio. The ability to influence your boss, your peer, your staff, or other key stakeholders is one of the essential skills for leaders at all levels.
Even with a solid foundation of credibility and competence, you as leaders and managers, may fall short if you don’t understand the influence dynamics of power, politics, and persuasion. Whether you’re getting support for your recommendations or getting approval for expenditures beyond your budget or getting items onto the agenda for the next meeting, your ability to influence matters.
Therefore, it is crucial to understand the range of influence techniques you can use, know when and how to use them as well as build your personal power base and sharpen your leadership skills.
