About the Session

Power, influence, and politics. Is 2018 the year you improve your ability to use these, and better succeed as an HR leader? Your HR department operates more effectively when your organization understands the role you play in the businesses’ success. In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to navigate power and influence and build your “political acumen” to become a stronger, more credible leader in your organization. You’ll take away a clearer understanding of who you need to influence and how to effect positive change within your organization through relationships.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand their natural influence style, and its strengths and weaknesses
  • Map the political networks and identify formal and informal leaders within their organization
  • List the five forms of power and how they affect influence in relationships
  • Apply the six principles of persuasion and know how to leverage them intentionally
  • Explain the trust “formula” and its importance in building relationships and persuading others
  • Use empathy and active listening techniques to build rapport and credibility with various stakeholder groups

This seminar will benefit senior-level HR leaders with 10+ years of experience working in small, medium and large organizations in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
