Workshops

Persuading the Bear: How to Influence Without Authority

Friday, October 19 2018

Taught by Michael Nir who has 18 years’ experience in human interaction with organizations such as Intel, Philips Healthcare, United Healthcare, Volvo, JPMorgan Chase, and more. The workshop will discuss best practices for leading and influencing without authority, providing participants with skills needed to effectively persuade others, lead diverse teams and get projects done on time.

When an employee is asked to take the lead on a project without the personal authority that comes from being part of the senior executive team, it can feel like they are trying to persuade a Grizzly Bear! Being able to effectively build enthusiasm, delegate tasks and deal with conflicting agendas – often with little or no reward for themselves – requires the skills to influence rather than the power of command.

Having once faced-down a 250 lb Grizzly Bear in Alaska, Michael knows what it’s like to persuade a powerful personality using wits alone.

This workshop is worth 8 PDUs. For more information on this course, click on the link abov
