Managers must have the ability to get things done with and through other people.

Are there times when you just want to wave a magic wand and make a problem go away, but you haven’t got a magic wand and the problem remains? Could you use tools for how to deal with long-term, persistent and resistant problems?

Our success depends on our ability to get things done with and through other people. In contrast, we often struggle to enable our colleagues to complete projects on time and on budget. We do our best to motivate employees to demonstrate more concern for profitability or following procedures. We provide incentives for our sales teams to hit quota. We continually work on ways to exert our influence, but we sometimes fall short.

It’s time this changed – and the Leadership Louisville Center can help. On March 21-22, the Center will offer Influencer Training: the new science of leading change. The course combines five decades of social science research with the skills used by hundreds of successful change agents to deliver a proven model for changing entrenched behaviors across teams and entire organizations.

Whether you’re managing a team of ten or leading a large organization, Influencer Training provides the skills you need to lead and influence others. The course is also highly effective for those without formal authority, as well as emerging leaders.

You’ll come away with skills to:

  • Identify the high-leverage behaviors you should focus on
  • Diagnose the real causes behind behavior problems
  • Effectively motivate and enable others—regardless of formal authority
  • Create behavior-change strategies that yield rapid, lasting results

These essential behavior improvements create a cascading effect on corporate culture, resulting in successful team and organizational initiatives, reduction in project errors and failures, and high employee engagement. Based on the New York Times best seller, this workshop was named “Training Product of the Year” by Human Resource Executive magazine.
