A Massive Shift Is Taking Place In The Business World

In most companies, up to eighty percent of employees are working in teams. And yet, most teams are nowhere near as effective as they could be.

They’re often divided by tensions, if not outright dissension, and dysfunctional teams drain employees’ energy, enthusiasm and creativity.

Join Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton as they share proven tactics managers can use to build cohesive, productive teams, despite the distractions and challenges every business is facing.

Sdrian & Chester will explore:

  • The findings of their 850,000-person research study, outlining the most effective ways women manage their teams—showing fascinating gender and generational differences in the workforce that smart managers should consider
  • Practical ways to address the real challenges today’s team managers are facing, such as the rise of Millennials, an increasing speed of change, a growing number of global and virtual teams, and friction created by working cross-functionally
  • How to enhance individual engagement; ways to promote healthy discord and spark innovation on a team; and techniques to unify customer focus and build bridges across functions, cultures and distance

The ability to influence is one of the essential skills for leaders at all levels. It’s more art than science, and it can be tough to get your arms around.  But the bottom line is that influence matters.

Influence has countless benefits, and is a particularly valuable asset for career progression.

Influence is power. No matter who you are, where you work, or what your professional goals are, achieving more influence in the workplace is critical for success.

Gaining influence on a team can help you work together more effectively. Gaining influence in a supervisory position can make you more respected and appreciated.

Gaining influence in a meeting can make your voice more likely to be heard and acknowledged.

Successful influencing is about making a connection and appealing to the heart as well as the head.

It is about identifying personal triggers and adapting your style to others’ to get the best results from the people you are trying to influence.

A combination of communication and interpersonal skills will help you to get the results you need.

Join Shawn Stratton (LinkedIn profile)  as he covers some practical hints to help develop your powers of influencing whether you need a decision from your boss, an “awkward” peer to help you or a client to accept your new prices.
