    How do we establish enough influence over key stakeholders to get your work done when you have no real authority over them? We know what needs to be done and we know how to do it, yet we cannot get our boss, our colleagues, and yes, even the people who report to us, to do the right thing.  Some days it feels like we are just banging our head against the wall. The result a whopping headache!

    This presentation workshop goes on to assist the attendees with understanding and formulating the difficult conversations that need to take place in order to influence stakeholders to support their businesses with the greatest degree of integrity. Exercises that provide attendees the means to practice the formulation of these conversations are a pivotal part of this stimulating and highly interactive presentation.
