How to Lead When You’re Not the Boss: Influencing Strategies and Techniques

Successful leaders, even those who DO possess formal authority over others, know that the ability to influence others is the greatest tool in their leadership arsenal. When you communicate persuasively and collaboratively, others are more likely to become committed and productive. Lorinda focuses on techniques for getting your point across in a way that engages people voluntarily rather than directing or ordering them. She’ll cover how to establish your credibility as a leader, the importance of creating rapport and what you need to take into consideration about personality and interpersonal dynamics. Plus, you’ll have time to work with your peers on influencing scenarios. Learn how to:

  • use listening and questions to great advantage
  • execute key influencing principles to get immediate results
  • cultivate relationships founded on trust so that influence just happens
