Personal Power and Credibility
Authority carries a certain positional power. A title grants a person some power and authority, but even that has its limits. To meet goals and get results requires developing a sense of personal power that goes beyond the job description and that print on the business card. Personal power stems from personal credibility, influence, and political savvy. Even those with the most humble job titles can know how to get things done. In this course, you'll learn how developing personal power and credibility, and using them for building trust with your coworkers and organization, allows you to increase your influence at work and reach your goals.

Building Personal Power through Influence
Getting things done in the business world requires more than simply issuing orders. And most of us don't have the titles or authority to issue them in the first place. Along with being credible and building trust, you get results without direct authority by using persuasion and influence. Effective persuasion methods and influencing skills are the difference makers for getting results, with or without positional authority. This course will help you engage and enlist others in getting things done without the resort of formal power. It explores persuasion techniques and ways to promote influence through effective communication, reciprocity, the exchange of professional 'currencies', and persevering through resistance.
