Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this interactive and action-packed workshop, participants will learn how to effectively engage difficult stakeholders in complicated projects and hostile and politically-charged environments. These principles are based on successful, real-life projects, using some of the best research in persuasion science, leadership, and management. In this workshop we will focus on practical applications—use of continuous buy-in principles, “Gratitude Altitude,” personal Net Performance Score (pNPS), “Pre-assignment @ charter” and shared ownership, logic-politics, managing up, participatory design principles, and more.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
(1) identify and define how a high personal Net Promoter Score can distinguish them as a superior leader in a politically charged environment;
(2) identify continuous buy-in principles to be used as tools for managing complicated projects and stakeholders.
