About the course

Exercising real leadership and leading positive change requires more than just a worthy goal or a good idea. And it requires more than formal authority. It also requires the skill of informal leadership: the ability to influence people both within and outside your chain of command in order to gain support and overcome resistance.

This program helps you understand and develop three key skills of informal leadership – navigating politics, understanding power, and exercising influence – that will help you to get things done in complex, imperfect human systems.

Topics include: How does one develop organizational power? How do informal networks affect your ability to get things done? How can you better diagnose the “political” landscape in your organization? And, how can you be more effective in gaining support for your initiatives?

Program Benefits:

  • Enhance your ability to understand and effectively navigate the informal side of your organization in order to lead change and make things happen.
  • Understand how power works in organizations and how you can access the power you need to get things done.
  • Evaluate your own approach to influencing others and develop a plan for strengthening your influence skills.
