How to get things done when you're not officially in charge

Course Description/Agenda

When you build strong influence and persuasion skills, you'll be able to get others' support and cooperation. It's just that simple ... but it's not that easy! That's why you need this training!

You Don't Have to Be in Charge to Get Great Results From Others!

You know how hard it can be to get things done when you have to depend on others. People have competing interests and different priorities, and don't always give you the cooperation you need. You can twist arms or go running to the boss, but those aren't really good solutions. Instead, you need to find a way to build relationships. But how do you do that?

You need to communicate with tact and finesse, walking that fine line between confident assertiveness and nagging. You have to find a way to locate common ground and create reciprocity - unfortunately, that's easier said than done. Even if you're a 'people person' and well-liked, you may be committing some of the cardinal sins of persuasion and influence.

And that's exactly why you can't afford to miss this training! Guaranteed to help you get things done with less stress and fewer headaches, this seminar will make you feel right at home guiding projects in no time. There's no better way to learn the skills you need to get things done - GUARANTEED.
