Session Description:

Are you getting the results you want with others? What important initiatives are at risk if they don’t get the support they need? Your ability to leverage opportunities and manage risks depends, at least in part, on your effectiveness in influencing the support needed from others. In other words, results will be, in some way, a function of your influence. Join Brad Matthews as he explores how to ensure the functional expertise of organizations, teams and individuals is more effectively utilized, produces greater positive impact and nurtures more effective, enjoyable work relationships. In this interactive session, practical influence management strategies and techniques will be experientially explored and you will have the opportunity to identify how you intend to become even more successful in influencing for the results you want.
