How To Influence Stakeholders From a Distance

April 8, 2020 | 2:00-2:30pm, ET

Work relationships are based on patterns of give and take. We regularly use our personal or positional power to win people over to our side. But relationships are more tenuous across a geographic divide. The value exchange system can break down without face-to-face contact.

Reserve your spot at this 30-minute webinar to learn about how to:

  • Build a strategy for winning people over by joining together.
  • Understand virtual stakeholders and their underlying concerns.
  • Advocate in a way that helps them appreciate your point of view and consider changing their own.

How to Give (& Not Give) Feedback from a Distance

April 15, 2020 | 2:00-2:30pm, ET

One of the hardest things to do is to tell a colleague that they let you or the team down. Now imagine conveying that difficult message over the phone or in an online meeting. What if the person reacts badly, counter-attacks, or just shuts down? The thought of that exchange can provoke huge anxiety.

Reserve your spot at this 30-minute webinar to learn about how to:

  • Prepare for a feedback from a distance conversation.
  • Remain kind, composed, and genuine while you convey your message.
  • Use the technology to help you guide the conversation and bring out the best in both of you.

How to Reach Agreements with Virtual Co-Workers

April 22, 2020 | 2:00-2:30pm, ET

People often leave online meetings or one-on-one conversations without knowing who agreed to what. Agreements and next steps aren’t written down. What happens instead? Some people don’t pay attention, some nod their heads in apparent agreement, or some simply disagree.

Reserve your spot at this 30-minute webinar to learn about how to:

  • Listen for and restate others’ opinions and proposals.
  • Advocate for your ideas to influence others’ thinking.
  • Reconcile differences to arrive at informed agreements and practical next steps.
