Project Managers Influencing Without Authority
Increasingly, project managers need to influence, but do so without authority. Often, without much if any positional power, we need to get a sponsor or team member or other stakeholder to say "Yes". There's no shortage of books on influence, but there's a new one I have been so excited to tell you about. If you've participated in any of our project management or leadership keynotes, workshops, or e-learning, you've heard me talk about Dr. Robert Cialdini, the acclaimed influence expert and author of Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.
In this episode, Dr. Cialdini joins us to talk about his newest book entitled Pre-Suasion: A Revolutionary Way to Influence and Persuade. You can learn more about Bob and his company at http://www.influenceatwork.com/.
