    Shift Happens When You Influence

    Program Description

    Competency Cluster: Leadership

    Sub-competency: Influence


    • Fosters Collaboration

    • Sets the vision for HR initiatives and builds buy-in from internal and external stakeholders

    • Promotes consensus among organizational stakeholders when proposing new initiatives

    • Serves as a transformational leader for the organization by leading change

    This presentation will offer three specific objectives for the participant to walk away with:

     1. A human behavior model that will enhance their ability to influence transaction in the      moment.

     2. A specific language and behaviors to look for and use when applying the model.

     3. Initial steps to utilizing and applying concepts to increase effectiveness as an influencer in the organization.

    The behavioral model is Transactional Analysis. Understanding how ego states communicate-and don’t- with each other within communication transactions provides the ability to influence outcomes in a productive and collaborative way.

    An easy to apply language within T.A is the Drama Triangle. This allows one to recognize an invitation to the drama party and influence others out of the Drama Triangle and into the OK Corral. This significantly increases collaboration, productive conflict leading to consensus, and effectiveness in change initiatives.

    First steps when learning this language and recognizing the behavior will be presented. “How do I know” and “what do I do” questions will be addressed to prepare participants for their first attempts at influencing far more effective board meetings, decision-making meetings, change initiative sessions, and high stake conversations.

    Creating a Culture of Accountability that Leads to Increased Results

    Program Description

    Creating higher levels of accountability in business seems to be a topic on every corporation’s agenda. Most companies can draw a link between the results they are achieving and the level of accountability they see manifested throughout their organization. Knowing how to create and sustain a culture of accountability for most organizations is the greatest challenge.

    How do successful organizations enable their people to take ownership for delivering on their intended results? Staying competitive usually means finding practical answers to that question. Creating higher levels of ownership often drives better results and increases the value and growth of the company. To be truly effective in today’s corporate environment, leaders must be able to help find ways to create higher levels of ownership and joint accountability for achieving key results.

    Pending Approval for Professional Development Credit (PDC) through SHRM and Recertification Credit through HRCI
