Influence Without Power

Presented & Sponsored by SNP

Our ability to influence others has little to do with titles. While some may have a “knack” for persuasion, communicating your message in a clear, credible, motivating way is truly a leadership skill.

Through SNP’s “Influence Without Power” workshop at Diversity Alliance for Science’s West Coast Conference, you’ll have the chance to hone your techniques and try new approaches that maximize your ability to affect change, drive toward a desired outcome, and ultimately get what you want.

So, come ready to share your experiences and to learn from fellow attendees. With a little trial-and-error you might just find a more efficient path to the greatest gift of all: someone else’s buy-in.
