Presenter: Wally Hauck
In our fast paced “flat” organizations we must move quickly to perform. The ability to work in teams and social networks is becoming more and more important. Employees are working on various projects across all functions. It’s for these reasons we can no longer rely on authority alone to get people to work with us, keep pace with change, and accomplish our goals.
It’s only through a combination of collaboration, trust, influence, and self-management that we can hope to increase our capacity to make rapid decisions, adapt to changes, serve customers, communicate effectively, and achieve our goals. Today, all employees must develop and continuously improve the skills of trust and influence in every interaction.
In this highly interactive and humorous session participants will learn:
- Why managing trust and influence are important skills everyone must develop today
- The four key elements of trust and how to manage them with anyone
- The 7 secrets of influence and how they create an environment of innovation and effective problem solving
