About the Workshop

As a leader,  you need everyone you rely on for goal achievement to follow your lead. Yet, at times, not everyone does. This puts performance, goals, and even your leadership position at risk. Guiding team members through a performance management process can be slow. And you remain at risk from peers, other departments, executives, customers, and others who affect your team’s success.

If anyone you rely on for goal achievement has the power to help or hinder your team’s success, what do you do?

You learn (1) how they choose who to follow and (2) how to influence them so they follow your lead.

In this 1.5 hour workshop, we exploring the fundamentals of power, influence, why people follow, and what to do about it. By attending, you will learn:

  • what power and influence are, the real nature of leader/follower relationships in organizations, and the type of power held by each role
  • how people decide who they’ll follow in organizations, how it affects goal achievement, and why leaders should care
  • how effective influence aligns people for successful goal achievement

 At the end of the workshop, you leave with actionable information you can apply immediately.
