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.
