Influencing Without Authority Workshop

10/11 September



Join our first soft skills training with our Educational Partner, AXA XL in enriching the Professional Development of our Risk Managers.

As organizations have become flatter and more matrixed, leaders and colleagues across all levels of the organization must find other ways to motivate and influence their colleagues in the absence of authority. In this workshop, you will learn new ways to influence colleagues without using positional power to achieve business objectives.
