As companies continue to transform into an interconnected, interdependent, global workplace, leadership power and influence is an essential skill. With change and complexity comes the need to be more nimble, more inclusive of diverse thought, and more collaborative.

That means the way leaders lead must change. They can no longer rely solely on their position, title or authority. Rather they must influence others to support and implement decisions. In other words, leadership is the act of influencing outcomes.

why should you attend

Leaders rely on influence to get things done. Whether it’s getting approval for expenditures beyond your budget, or getting items onto the agenda for the next meeting, your ability to influence matters.

If you don’t have influence you will have difficulty leading others and impacting your organization. It is crucial for leaders and managers to understand the range of influence techniques they can use, know when and how to use them, build their power bases so that they have the capacity to be influential, and sharpen their skills so that they can influence people effectively.
