Free Webinar: Intentional Influence 
January 16, noon–1 p.m.

As the world becomes more specialized, fragmented, and complex, there's a greater need to be effective at influencing others. Although influence is a crucial leadership skill, many influence efforts fail because people are not deliberate with their time and attention.  

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • the nature of influence—distinguishing between every day or casual influence and influencing with intention.
  • whom should you influence—who are the stakeholders?
  • how to influence—what are the tactics?
  • influence messaging—creating a compelling vision of the future.
