About This Program
Leaders are unlikely to be successful if their approach is to simply demand things get done. Most people in professional capacities use their influence to motivate and inspire their teams and cement their authority.

Course participants will explore the ethics of influence and learn techniques for generating motivation. They'll practice approaches for strategically building relationships and developing reciprocity. They'll learn how to generate authority and harness social information and cues to be a stronger leader. This skill-set is useful for anyone who works with people and coursework is designed to help participants understand the psychology of why people act the way they do. Through a mix of short videos, immersive activities, debriefing discussions, and integrative exercises, participants will master the ability to mobilize others and communicate persuasively.
