Program overview

Have you ever wanted to go back in time to change how a situation or conversation played out? What would you do differently to create a better, more productive result? On this course, you will get to do exactly that and learn from our faculty who have mastered the art of influencing in the workplace as consultants, directors, and vice presidents—long before they became academics.

The Performance through People course will teach you how to motivate, delegate, and coach for success. You'll leave aware of your impact on others, and be able to encourage confident, effective communication in your team. Upon completion, you will:

- Have a deep understanding of your own innate influencing approach

- Have grasped the influencing styles of others, and understand how to adjust your approach for maximum effectiveness

- Have learned how to apply these theories of persuasion and influence to real challenges you’re currently facing in the workplace

Participant feedback

In the first month after, I referred to the course notes regularly to help me consider which leadership style I need given the situation, and now I’m starting to identify the right style intuitively.
