Influence Savvy for HR: Your Role In Moving the Organization Forward
Tuesday, June 21, 2011 | 5:00pm - 7:30pm | Atlanta Marriott Century Center

Without skillfully winning the support of key individuals in the organization, HR professionals face an uphill climb as they strive to achieve business goals. This program discusses how to become more influential as well as how to use the influence you already have to influence organizational decision-making and move vital projects forward to achieve business goals. Discussing three key influence powers, the session will present insights into how influence works within organizations and HR can be more successful by employing influence skillfully to align or achieve business goals. 

You will: 
1) Analyze the level of influence you already have with key individuals and determine how to improve your results. 
2) Define which level of influence outcome you most need to achieve to move your organizational toward its strategic goals. 
3) Strategize about using alliance building, reciprocity and communication habits change to strengthen key relationships to participate as a partner in strategic decisions
