Session Description
Influence is a crucial competency that enables leaders to succeed in the global marketplace. This program is a highly interactive, leadership development workshop for women. In this course women come to understand the three levels of power involved in influencing, they discover their I2I (Influence to Impact) influence profile, they are taught the power of language and the role gender plays in organizational influence, they are taught to use dialogue as an influence tool, and are taught the secrets of leveraging the hidden power of the organization. This seminar is the perfect opportunity to expand your leadership skills and set action plans for achieving your career and business goals.

Dr. Porter King is the Founder and Principal of the TransPorter Consulting Group, LLC, and an inspirational teacher and speaker.  Dr. Porter King received both Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Industrial and Systems Engineering from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, the Master of Arts from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago and the Doctor of Philosophy in Organizational Communication (with an emphasis in Cultural Studies) from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.

Her areas of professional expertise include leadership development; diversity and inclusion consulting and training; process facilitation; and communication coaching and training. She developed an award winning program for women leaders entitled, Influence to Impact: Leveraging Interpersonal Power for Women Leaders, in which she helps women leaders unravel the complexities of gender that still affect women’s advancement, effectiveness and engagement.    Dr. Porter King is an author and has published monographs that explored the dynamics of leadership in the Gullah communities of the Sea Islands. She is also the author of "Leading Ladies" and "Leading Lessons", both published by Augsburg Press.  In these books she challenges traditional notions of leadership that have prevented many women and men from making significant impact and offers fresh insight into leadership styles and models that truly transform lives.
