CCDI Webinar: Influencing without authority

Employee Resource Groups (ERG) often have no authority. They are volunteer run groups that are often run by people who are not at the highest levels of an organization. One of the most critical skills ERG leaders can have is the ability to positively influence people in such a way that it inspires others to follow and act willingly. This skill is critically important for the success of an ERG.

This webinar will examine the concept of influencing and how individuals, specifically leaders and members of ERGs can be influential in their organizations without any formal authority. We will focus on overcoming resistance, adapting to social styles and how to be impactful without being forceful.

Who should attend:

  • ERG leaders and members: This webinar is targeted toward the leadership and members of Employee Resource Groups (aka Business Resource Groups, Affinity Networks, etc.). Information will range from introductory (1.0) to advanced (3.0). The content is designed to be applicable to any ERG or network.
