Workplace Application:
You will learn how to lead others, both upward and laterally through the power of persuasion. 

In HR, there is the unique opportunity to be leaders without formal authority. Leading is not about titles and “symbols” of power, but rather it is about achieving results through others. However, working relationships can be complex, requiring you to be adaptable in your approach. This session will illustrate how you can positively influence others to achieve organizational success by leading upward and laterally through the power of persuasion. During this session, you will learn how to:

  • Evaluate the significance of upward and horizontal leadership.
  • Identify when and how to ask the right questions.
  • Remove obstacles that hinder growth and the sharing of knowledge.
  • Recognize behaviors that create a culture of continuous growth and development.
