Lessons from the Org Chart: Ignite Your Influence and Build Authority

Lessons from the Org Chart: Ignite Your Influence and Build Authority

You’ve established yourself as an EA with multiple competencies that make you adept at executing others’ priorities. Given your job title, though, people won’t necessarily associate the role with authority. You can change this and gain recognition and informal authority by igniting your influence. To do so, you need to think outside the traditional confines of the role. Work on adapting and applying the practices of people a couple of levels above you on the organizational chart. This session will provide you insights on healthy self-promotion, increasing your visibility and enhancing your reputation, and negotiating from a position of strength. These are all learned skills (and they’re not only for extroverts). Your takeaways:

  • How to apply emotional and cultural intelligence for self-promotion
  • Ways to establish visibility and recognition in your role
  • Negotiation terms: recognizing what is negotiable and how to approach discussions
