Exercising Influence

Exercising influence is a cornerstone of effective leadership. And yet, there is a delicate balance between getting things done and upsetting people with commands, demands, and directives. Sometimes, direct influence is the best way to get something done, and sometimes coming at it more obliquely will be more effective. ODL’s Exercising Influence class provides you with a range of tools—direct and indirect—to get things done in a manner that works for the long haul.
