Influence is a crucial skill that can help you achieve your desired outcome, even when you don’t have direct authority over the people involved. Our Influencing Without Authority Training is designed to equip you with the language, tactics, tools, and models necessary to influence outcomes without relying on direct power.
This course is perfect for individuals looking to improve their team interactions or who need to enlist others’ help in the workplace. We provide participants with a case study or an opportunity to apply what they have learned to their situation.
We understand that influencing without authority can be a challenge for many people. Obtaining information or materials from individuals who do not report to you or who are not in sync with your schedule or needs can be especially difficult. That’s why we offer a solution that addresses these challenges.
