Managing Beyond Authority™
This award-winning program was developed with Stanford University to address a very common, but challenging, situation that leaders face in today's organization. The situation occurs when a leader needs to achieve bottom-line results, but doesn't want to or can't rely on position power to achieve them. Executives face this situation because their initiatives often require a greater level of commitment, initiateive, and energy than can be achieved through power alone. The have position power, but know they can't use it. Project managers face this situation because the project management environment gives them very little formal authority. They have little if any position power, but know they must accomplish their project goals.
Managing Beyond Authority™ uses two Harvard Business School case studies, challenging models, and engaging practice to show participants how to build, maintain, and exercise the kind of credibility required to achieve results without relying on formal authority.
