Exercising real leadership and leading positive change requires more than just a worthy goal or a good idea. It also requires the skill of informal leadership: the ability to influence people both within and outside your chain of command in order to gain support and overcome resistance. This session helps you understand and develop three key skills of informal leadership: navigating politics, understanding power, and exercising influence.

*The current healthcare situation requires that the Olin Business School provide participants with learning conditions that protect the health of participants, business school staff, and faculty. As a result, Olin faculty are prepared to deliver their sessions either live, or virtually, as regulations and circumstances permit. If conditions prohibit face-to-face coursework, we will switch affected seminars to virtual delivery via the Zoom platform.
