Length: 6-hour Live Online Workshop

Employees are open to influence and motivation. "If you tell me what to do, I will do it to protect my job. But if you inspire me to do it, I will do it to the best of my ability." Supervisors who understand this simple truth and know how to apply it are the ones who generate results in today's organizations. Great managers develop high-performance teams that get results because they know how to lead a team, not just manage it. This program will smooth your transition from individual contributor to supervisor to leader. You will learn the basics like delegation, time management, and performance appraisal techniques, and gain insights into the more advanced aspects of leadership needed to inspire and motivate teams.

In this course you will learn to identify opportunities to delivery more products and services to your customers, and to apply a proven selling process that makes decision-making easy. You will become confident presenting additional buying opportunities and higher-margin alternatives, and your customer will thank you for it.
Getting Results Without Authority
(01:00 PM - 02:00 PM)
Length: 1-hour Live Online Webinar
Organizations have changed – there is now a mix of top-down authority and work where no single person is always “the boss.” Between matrix organizations, flatter structures, contracting, and outsourcing, success often depends on gaining the cooperation of people and resources that you do not have direct authority over. Great leaders and managers find success through influence and negotiation. They focus first on gaining employees’ respect and trust. They build up credibility through consistent action and leadership. They listen and provide support, thereby laying the groundwork for future support and influence. In this Keys to Success Webinar, you will learn the characteristics you need to have, and actions you need to take, to get maximum results from people who don’t work directly for you. You’ll learn how to influence others by building authentic trust, credibility, and respect, thereby gaining their willing cooperation when you need it most. Getting Results Without Authority is part of the Keys To Success Webinar Series.

You'll walk away with other best practices for support materials, visuals, and presentation delivery that will help you plan for your next presentation.
