Influencing is a critical skill leaders need for successJoin us for an interesting evening of professional development with Susan Bethanis, Ed.D., where you'll learn to hone your ability to influence! 
In this discussion, Susan will share real world examples from her work as an executive coach and she'll help you understand:
  • What executive presence is needed to sell their idea to peers and upper management
  • How to influence internal colleagues to support and “green light” your idea
  • How to deal with resistance to a great idea
  • Six optimal ways to influence: reciprocity, authority, liking, commitment, social proof, and scarcity

You’ll leave the session with tips on how to best put influencing skills into action to get the resources and buy-in you need to move from idea-to-innovation.
