    Communicating influentially to clients, colleagues and bosses to ensure a cohesive approach to project execution while promoting the most suitable approach to be implemented based on objectives and expectations.

    Many organizations invest in sales people because they bring in business. Although this is wise, individuals who actually implement the solution for the customer are often forgotten. These individuals have the product expertise, but often not the influential communication skills, to communicate realistic expectations of a project to colleagues and/or clients.

    Influence Without Authority Influence diverse stakeholders to positive outcomes, focuses on the fundamentals of communication to achieve realistic expectations while promoting the best outcome. The program also takes into consideration the politics that often exist when dealing with colleagues with whom we work with every day and over whom we have no authority.
