Power and Influence

Learn to use practical tools to become more powerful and influential with coworkers, managers, and partners. 

About This Program

This course is proof positive that knowledge is power, power is influence, and together they create a clear path to your career objectives. For some, it’s more like an interstate highway, because the ability to influence others and communicate persuasively is critical to a leader’s effectiveness. To implement strategies, initiate changes, and execute decisions, you must possess the know-how, the skill—the power—to inspire others and shape their behavior.

Power and Influence is a perennially-popular course at the Carlson School of Management:

  • Participants learn to use practical tools to become more powerful and influential with coworkers, managers, and partners
  • Lectures, discussions and live exercises teach you how to master and mobilize entire teams, departments, and organizations
  • The course is led by a Poets and Quants award winner (for Best Faculty Under 40) who is a nationally renowned expert on persuasion and social influence in organizations, and an instructor who routinely receives rave reviews from course participants.
