About this event

  • 2 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

This workshop is designed for employees at all levels who are interested in creating positive change in their work environment or whose role requires them to gain buy-in from others, including people in power, direct reports and cross-functional teams.

All levels and disciplines are welcome, from junior staff members to senior leadership. (Individual contributors, this is for you, too!)

The class size for this workshop is capped at 20 people.

Why attend?

In this workshop, you'll be able to focus on an area where you personally wish you had more influence in your life. Lara will lead you through a step-by-step process to identify stakeholders, develop winnable experiments, and prompt change.

You'll walk away with:

  • an understanding of the difference between influence and manipulation
  • the three rules of ethical influence
  • frameworks that work to enact change in a variety of situations regardless of hierarchy
  • influence techniques that take into account other people’s needs, without compromising one’s own.
  • extra resources for honing these skills after the workshop

Previous participants' feedback:

"The methodological approach is really useful - having a checklist of sorts to go through will absolutely help formulate ideas, figure out what I need to be attached to and anticipate needs and concerns better!"

"I got a lot out of the portions of workshop time where Lara coached individuals in the Zoom. Hearing about different problems was great for helping me reframe my own problems."

"The framing really forced me to expand my thinking. I got so much out of it, but perhaps the biggest thing for me was thinking about stakeholders and their roles and core values."
