Influencing Skills for Leaders

For those of us responsible for leading teams and projects, there are a core set of skills we need to develop. We need to manage our time. Deal with conflict. Develop relationships across the organization. We need to think strategically and learn to deal with change. Oh yeah, and develop confidence as we do all of that!

All of these are true. But one area that I see over and over that most of us need to develop has to do with our ability to influence. Regardless of your level in the organization, project managers and leaders are constantly faced with situations where we need to influence team members, bosses, customers, and other stakeholders. And more often than not, we have to do that influencing without authority.

To help bolster your ability to influence without being a jerk, I’m joined today by Tim David to talk about his new book TRUE Influence: The Magic of Human Connection. It's packed with practical lessons to help you further develop your influencing skills.
