Influence in Talent Development: How to SCALE Your Influence for Greater Impact
Virtual Chapter Meeting
Do you lack the confidence in your ability to influence? Influence across all levels of the organization has never been more important for success in talent development. Your ability to influence will dictate success in your role and in your career progression.
Especially when not in an official position of power, many talent development professionals don’t view themselves as strong influencers, and, therefore, lack the confidence that they can be the conduit to change. However, the influence that can be generated without positional power has the greatest potential for impact.
Whether early career or a seasoned professional, the practices introduced in this session will guide you in honing your skills for influencing at 360º scale - ‘from’ and ‘to’ any level.
Based on Vivian’s new book, Influence in Talent Development, published by the Association for Talent Development, this interactive program inspires talent development professionals in elevating your personal influence and developing influence within your organizations.
Vivian pulls back the curtain on five powerful influence principles and reveals five specific actions to SCALE your INFLUENCE for greater impact starting today.
- S - Social Capital
- C - Courage
- A - Authenticity
- L - Leaning in With Passion
- E - Engaging a Diverse & Inclusive Workplace Community
The current environment is changing rapidly and the role of talent development professionals in your ability to influence never more important.
