Enhancing Your Interpersonal Power and Organizational Influence

  • This event has passed.
Corporate politics can be a bit…challenging.


The business world is some shark-infested waters. Swimming through the politics is a delicate dance between informality and professionalism. This is a struggle we face at all levels of the corporate ladder. Finding that perfect stroke is crucial for gaining influence with those who matter most. Be better prepared than your peers. Gain more influence in short interactions than others will garner throughout their entire career. Learn to enhance your interpersonal power.


At this presentation, you will learn:
  • How to make an impression and sell ideas in short interactions
  • Tools for standing out among your peers
  • Ways to manage the stress of job demands, so it doesn’t hurt your productivity
