Producing Results Without Authority



12 PDUs

Project members, particularly project managers, are measured by their ability to accomplish goals. Those goals are met, more often than not, by reasoning, persuading and inspiring others to share a vision and pursue a common purpose.

This two-day workshop delivers the knowledge necessary for influencing others and building trust in give-and-take relationships up, across and down the organizational pyramid and beyond. Our focus will be on the Three Spheres and Nine Types of Influence available to consider to assist in effectively producing results through others even when you are not someone’s boss. We will take stock of some preferred strategies and add others to your toolbox. You will be able to identify gaps in your network and set out to build strong and productive relationships with an emphasis on organizational objectives and being someone others will follow.  You will assess your ability to gain and maintain trust from those you work with.

No prerequisites
