Have you ever been tasked with a project that requires buy in from others? Have you wondered how will you get your colleagues to listen to you and complete tasks when you're not their manager? Instead, why not lead vs manage teams and gain buy in from those peers around you when they realize you are not managing, yet you are helping lead them in the right direction. As an IT professional, you are often isolated to certain tasks, projects, and even specific work environments; this creates a challenge for building relationships and rapport, which are key to influencing others. By learning simple techniques and being aware of the need to partner with others, you will gain the skillset that will help you build authority, even when you are not in charge. A leader knows how to lead without a title and how to take charge without being in charge. If you're in a situation where you're not confident in your ability to get buy in and support from your colleagues and peers, join us in this session to build confidence and unlock a toolbox of skills that will benefit you throughout your IT career.
