Train Managers to Influence Organizational Stakeholders

Today’s business environment is flatter and more agile than ever before. True power no longer resides in position, but in the ability to influence others.

  • Positional power is not the panacea it was in the days of traditional, hierarchical organizations. Today’s flatter, agile, global structure requires leadership that motivates others to act.
  • Underdeveloped influence skills are common, despite their cost: difficulty getting buy-in for ideas or initiatives; project stalls and/or abandonment; lower employee engagement; and low scores on leader performance assessments such as 360 degree reviews and formal performance appraisals.
