About this talk
You may not have much authority and control when it comes to other people. Even if you have a title that suggests you can use command-and-control tactics, that’s seldom the best way to get things done.
With or without a title, influence is a much stronger tool. Influence is available to everyone, and it’s far more effective in getting people to act, think, and commit.
In this presentation, we’ll cover the basics of influence. And we’ll provide practical, tactical ways you can wield influence without getting a personality transplant or a promotion. After all, influence is grounded in authenticity and connections with others!
It’s all about getting people to see the benefits, understand the impact on them personally, and become genuinely interested in participating in the efforts that lead you to goal attainment. It’s about building buy-in, gaining consensus, and inspiring commitment.
You have all the tools you need. All that’s missing is an understanding of how to use them more effectively.
