INFLUENCE AND ACTION: THE CORE OF LEADERSHIP

 
Successful managers realize that leadership skills, more than management skills, get results in large organizations. As organizations are downsized or re-engineered, routine management functions are being assumed by administrators while managers are expected to be leaders by developing and implementing new business ideas. The leadership challenge can be daunting, particularly for those with technical backgrounds who are “thrust” into leadership positions.As a leader, you will be expected to influence others, including your team, your superiors, and managers in different departments, as you build support for change and implement new programs. This seminar will examine the qualities and skills of leaders who get “extraordinary” things done under tight time and resource constraints. This seminar will discuss how to get people to embrace change, how to build trust and credibility, how to manage the politics of relationships, and how to inspire those around you to follow your lead.
