Last month eCornell hosted a Webinar with Professor Samuel Bacharach entitled “Developing the Influencing Skills of Your Leaders”. Professor Bacharach discussed his approach to the micro-skills of high performance leadership. Specifically, he laid out two overlapping sets of skills: the skills needed to move agendas ahead, and those needed to execute.
As he argued, the key to execution is the capacity to get people on your side and maintain momentum. In the world in which authority is no longer the answer for everything, Professor Bacharach invited the 1,000 plus crowd to think about how to use influence to move their agendas. eCornell invites you to listen to the archived version of this Webinar by going here.
