The Art and Practice of Influencing Without Authority

Practice how to influence and gain support from others beyond the responsibilities inherent in your job position or title. 

Be prepared to challenge your assumptions on what it really means to create positive change. Through interactive activities utilizing Harvard Kennedy School’s Adaptive Leadership framework, engage in a “case-in-point” method of teaching which allows you to experience the concepts at work during the course.
