Persuasion (Live Online): Influencing Without Authority

July 9, 9:00 am - August 14, 5:00 pm


“As our careers grow, it gets harder and harder to improve our interpersonal skills, because our authority prevents us from getting the kind of honest feedback we need. This program provides practical feedback for the critical skills needed to advance in our careers.”
– The program’s faculty director Robert Bontempo

At a time when leadership requires less emphasis on giving orders, and more of a focus on building consensus, personal persuasiveness, and the ability to negotiate effectively have become critical skills for success.

Drawing on sound psychological research, Persuasion (Live Online): Influencing Without Authority covers the range of interpersonal and intergroup persuasion challenges, from one-on-one negotiations to driving change in an organization’s culture. The focus is on practical skills and immediate application to participants’ real-world challenges.

As a live online program, this program is designed to deliver real impact in real time, with two 90-minute live faculty sessions per week, including a range of persuasion challenges, focusing on practical skill development and real-world situations.
