Overcoming challenges to impact and influence

In order to make a real difference, you need to be able to persuade decision makers and clients to accept your views and enact your advice. This can be particularly frustrating when you have little positional power over them. Often these people will be at higher positional levels than you - in fact, you may not even interact directly with them - such as Board or Executive members.

How do you cascade your influence upwards? Or to clients, colleagues and junior team members?

Drawing on the latest science in decision making and influence, Dr Alicia Fortinberry will help you persuade and galvanize the people you need to support you and make the right things happen. These concepts and skills apply to family and friends as well as work.
