As a Human Resource department, how well do you influence your company's direction? Contribute to the corporate discussion about customers, products, and strategy? Are you a participant in senior-level meetings? Do managers seek your opinion? Are you seen as a trusted advisor and strategic partner to both operations and senior management? Some people still think of Human Resources as those guys that just do the “people stuff,” shuffling contracts and recruiting new hires. In fact, there is a disconnect between how the HR function is perceived in many organizations and the often-untapped potential it offers in a business climate that is fueled with change and transformation.

Simply put, most business leaders understand the basic function of HR, but they don't see the bigger opportunity of utilizing Human Resources expertise to impact their company’s productivity and profitability. The focus of this webinar is to provide insights and techniques into the dynamics of power, politics, and persuasion so that HR professionals and leaders can get their voices heard and their recommendations acted upon as well as play a greater role in contributing to the company’s business goals- not from a compliance position– but from a strategic position.

Why Should You Attend

When was the last time you thought about how you influence others - how you change minds, shape opinions, move others to act? Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager said, “The key to leadership is influence, not authority." That’s why it’s important to include influencing skills as part of your professional portfolio. Even with a solid foundation of credibility and competence, you as Human Resource professionals and leaders may fall short if you don’t understand the influence dynamics of power, politics, and persuasion. Whether you’re advising staff or operations, or getting approval for expenditures beyond your budget, or getting items onto the agenda for the next meeting, your ability to influence matters.

Therefore, it is crucial to understand the range of influence techniques you can use, know when and how to use them, build your power bases, and sharpen your persuasion skills so that they can be viewed as a strategic partner working to support the business strategy.

This webinar will help you master the art of influence focusing on how to:

  • Build your personal or informal power and political savvy
  • Build credibility by getting out of your HR silo and into the business mainstream
  • Build partnerships with all levels of management to support the organization’s corporate strategy
