Influence and Collabration

This half day class explores the approach to building influence and to the use of collaboration skills. Influence - the effect of one person or thing on another. Influence is a working philosophy; it is the ability to get work done with people over whom you have no direct control or authority. Collaborate - to labor together; to work jointly with others to accomplish a task. As you participate in this class, consider the importance of the role you can play in collaborative situations and how you can build successful relationships with your stakeholders—internal and external—through your collaborative skills.
