Ways of Working



Influence Without Authority

How do you get the support, engagement and commitment you need from others when you don’t manage them? This is a constant challenge, particularly in high pressure, results-driven environments where resources are limited and project schedules are tight. What you need is the ability to effectively influence without authority. This requires critical skills and strategies to engage cross-functional colleagues and stakeholders.



  • Define influence without authority and examine common challenges.
  • Explore relationship building strategies to help you maximize collaboration with your colleagues.
  • Identify ways to break through resistance and inspire others to embrace change.
