Best Course Studies in Middle East 2017. Mid-level Managers WHY attend this programme? Today’s business environment is not easy. Priorities change frequently and you need to get results faster. But in companies and organisations, you don’t always have direct control over all the people and elements you need to deliver results efficiently and on time. We all know how stressful and frustrating it can be, trying to get everybody in a project team to deliver their parts of the project. It can also be just working with your colleagues every day, they are just too busy to help you with your project. If you could just get everybody on board and supporting your ideas, it would make life so much easier. It would also save the company time and money. But how do you do this? How do you get others to support your goals and objectives? How do you work your way through internal politics to get the collaboration and resources you need? How do you get all stakeholders on board including your peers, your team, senior management and maybe even customers and suppliers? WHO should attend? If you need to influence people or teams to get things done, then this programme is for you! HOW will you benefit?

This programme is facilitated by an experienced manager who has risen up through various organizational positions in multinational organizations to hold a senior position, and has extensive experience using ethical influence to achieve outcomes.

You’ll get plenty of chance to practice your influence skills through a variety of case studies, exercises and role plays, with feedback from your facilitator and your fellow participants. Module 1: You, Influence and the Managerial Context We will look at the role of influence in strategy implementation – getting things done through people over whom you have no authority – your peers whose collaboration your team needs to meet its own goals and even your superiors whose sponsorship and resource allocation you’ll need to achieve your departmental strategy.

Through case studies, self-assessment, role play, peer discussion, and reflection you will: First, gain awareness of your own influencing style and skill level Build a deeper appreciation and understanding of the role of influence in management Get a conceptual introduction to the essentials of influence - power, politics, persuasion, and strategy implementation/goal achievement Identify your own influencing challenge with respect to implementing your strategy Module 2: Navigate your organization’s politics Like it or not, organizational politics are an integral part of daily working life.

You’ll need the collaboration of your peers; this means understanding their goals and constraints in relation to yours and in relation to organizational goals, and identifying opportunities for both of you to benefit. It means mapping to their interests, gaining their respect and trust for collaboration.
