AmCham Advanced Learning Lab Seminar Have you noticed how we now need to collaborate with people in other functions and organizations more and more often—and with the pandemic on our shores, do it all virtually? While collaboration is a good idea in principle, what many of us do not know is that to truly benefit from collaboration, we need to overcome a specific challenge first. What’s that? When we interact with people in other functions and organizations, we usually do not have authority over them. So, how do you get those people to listen to you—and listen willingly? That’s what this seminar will show you. Using real business cases, the speaker will explain how we subtly influence others when we lack authority. The seminar will combine short lectures, videos, real-world case studies, small group discussions in breakout rooms, and Q&A sessions with the speaker.
