AEL Leadership Series: Influencing Up

To get things done in today's organizations, we must positively influence others—direct reports, colleagues, managers, clients, suppliers—both inside and outside and up and down the chain of command.  We acquire this influence by gaining buy-in for our ideas, securing cooperation, aligning agendas, and solidifying and maintaining action.

People who demonstrate positive influence fulfill their personal objectives while maintaining and nurturing important work relationships. That may sound simple, but in practice it can be extremely challenging. This session looks at ways you can grow your own influence when managing up the chain of command.  Learn to assess the situation and propose solutions that enhance your relationship with those in authority, and develop personal strategic initiatives to get your ideas heard and acted upon.
