Workplace Application:
This session will show you how you can increase your impact at all levels within your organization.  

Do you have the skills it takes to push your agenda forward? Are there constituencies you need to influence that you have no direct authority over? Influencing others has become a critical skill as organizations have become flatter and needs have become greater. Whether this takes the form of becoming a trusted advisor to key decision makers or navigating the complexity of internal politics, no leader can succeed in the new economy without this vital skill. This session will discuss what effective influencers know and do to not only position their ideas but also themselves for success.
