Summary

Discover how to embrace the leadership qualities that inspire others to follow

Workshop Description/Agenda

If you’re working on a project that draws on your own knowledge, skills and experience, you’d likely feel comfortable taking the lead — regardless of your level of authority. But what if you’re in charge of a critical project that can only succeed with the cooperation of several people across your organization — people over whom you have zero authority?

As workplaces become more collaborative, your ability to lead others without formal authority is key to your success. Discover how to embrace the leadership qualities that inspire others to follow when you sign up for this LIVE, virtual course. Through expert insights, guided reflection and interactive exercises, including group discussions, you'll learn how to establish credibility, build trust, and engage, motivate and influence others even when they don’t report to you.

Enroll today and start building your confidence as an emerging business leader. When the time comes, you’ll be prepared to take the reins in teams, groups or projects that don’t have a designated leader, but could use one.
