In today’s matrixed environments, success in management often requires the ability to influence across an organization without formal authority to ensure cooperation and coordination across departmental boundaries. In this session, participants learn how to assess organizational power and influence dynamics, assess their own reach and influencing potential, and explore effective ways to build personal power sources over their careers. Participants learn about a variety of influencing skills and strategic relationship building strategies that enhance personal power and influence, regardless of role or tenure. From here, we will explore how to then reframe their influencing skills specifically as it applies to managing up and managing key stakeholders. Participants will receive actionable tips to approach difficult conversations, make the most of meeting times and accept feedback.
