Many leaders lack the ability to influence. This is sometimes evident when leaders worry about the opinions of others, avoid tasks that require high levels of influence, or are overly prescriptive to rules and regulations to drive behaviour. This can also be evident in leaders who over-rely on strength, authority and pace to drive behaviour. At the most senior levels of organisations, leaders may have strong influencing capabilities, yet be tasked with managing such complex stakeholder landscapes that even more sophisticated and unusual influence is required.
Through processes involving self-awareness and development, emotional intelligence and strategy, Dattner Grant can build the influencing capabilities of any individual in an organisation, from frontline employees to the C-Suite.
Dattner Grant’s Compass leadership program also helps women to build their visibility and influencing capability.
