AmCham Advanced Learning Lab Seminar
To get things done at work, we now need to collaborate cross-functionally more and more often. Typically, we provide clear instructions, information, resources, and support. However, to do that—that is, to instruct others—we need direct-line authority.
But what do you do if you do not have the authority, but still, your own performance depends on getting the other members of the cross-functional team to do their parts? How can you get things done then?
That’s where knowing how to masterfully persuade and influence without authority comes in handy—and that’s what this seminar is designed to help you understand. Using real, business cases and discussion with AmCham members from other industries, you will learn to identify the skill sets you need to persuade and influence members of cross-functional teams to get things done when collaborating cross-functionally.
- The difference between instructing, persuading, and influencing
• Real, video-based business cases as examples
• Group discussion with other AmCham members
- Model and method for persuading and influencing when you lack authority to instruct
• Hands-on practice
• Discussion and feedback
• Q&A with the speaker
- Information about books and free online resources for self-development
