MPIGNY Education: “Winning. Strategies to Create Buy-In.”

October 15, 2019
8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Ivy Lane
116 E 60 St (between Park and Lexington Ave)
New York, NY

Your Idea or Mine?

Do you ever feel like you’re working way harder than you need to?  Like even the simplest sign off takes forever?  Stakeholders aren’t getting you what you need? Sometimes it even feels like people are deliberately resisting the plan. 

In all types of organizations and groups, success relies on individuals gaining buy-in from other individuals and teams. A Nod, A Smile, A (Virtual) Handshake are all highly coveted results inherent to agreement. Learn new ways to unleash your fresh and innovative ideas, in a non-threatening way to yield influence over behavior and motivation to build consensus. 

Join established professionals in the field of Organizational Development for an engaging discussion on:  

  1. Leading without authority
  2. Collaborative decision-making tools and process
  3. Empowered adult states at work
  4. Building relationships and working cross-functionally in complex organizations
  5. Communicating to different learning styles

Once you have evaluated these new strategies, there will be a voluntary workshop facilitated by professionals to test drive how to create buy-in.
