Influencing across the organization

A 2-day intensive, interactive, reflective course that helps participants plan a tailored, systematic approach for gaining support, resources, and collaboration from individuals in matrix organizations where you have no formal influence. This course focuses on case studies, hands-on exercises, self-awareness and teamwork. We keep the participants actively involved throughout these intensive 2 days, using a little theory, and then immediately practicing in a safe, comfortable environment. Participants walk out with real influencing skills that they can start to apply immediately.
