THE POWER OF INFLUENCE
Influence is the key to getting things done in today's organizations. Work and today’s work environment are becoming more complex and decentralized. Yet leaders still need to capture the right information and resources, gain cooperation, and implement solutions. Increasingly this involves having to influence peers not only within departments but also across business units and around the globe.

INTERPERSONAL INFLUENCE, VULNERABILITY, AND AUTHENTICITY
Every day, leaders make choices regarding interpersonal interactions that impact their ability to influence others. This session will explore the relationship between vulnerability, authenticity, connection, and influence. It will examine the beliefs we hold, the choices we make with regard to what parts of ourselves we share in our interpersonal interactions, and how those choices can help us gain or lose influence with others.
FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS
Can you lead and inspire without feelings or emotions? Conveying passion requires emotion but how can you best express it to achieve your goals? Feelings and emotions are essential to leadership and yet not enough attention is paid to their role in a leader's professional success. Thinking and feeling are like the bass and treble lines of a musical score. They are not the same, but when both are congruent, they provide dimensionality, texture, and meaning to make our communication more complete. This session explores the role feelings play in our dealings with other people.
