2016 Consulting Rankings
In this current environment where our ways of working have been impacted by remote and hybrid work arrangements, influence skills have emerged as more important than ever before. Building, protecting and using influence is critical for achieving goals when our interactions have become more remote and our communications channels more mediated. Now, more than ever, influencing others through good decision-making, interpersonal relationships, emotional intelligence, and communication, matters for success.
Watch our webinar, led by Wharton Business School’s Professor Cade Massey, where we discussed:
- how you can think about building your facility with a wide range of influence tools to help with these efforts
- a range of topics, such as power and status, informal networks, coalitions, persuasion and ethics, while focusing in on the core influence skills needed to thrive within the current workplace
- ideas and concepts that will help you examine how you can adjust your influence behaviors to better influence in your present workplace setting.
