Drawing on research from her latest book, Making Your Voice Heard, Connson Locke will look at how to develop your leadership presence and be more influential in the workplace.
Discover a fresh approach to influence, grounded in psychological research, and learn how to make your voice heard, regardless of your background or gender. How do you exercise influence when those around you have as much or more power than you do? Where does your power come from? Connson’s book, based on her hugely popular Guardian Masterclass ‘Developing your presence, power, and influence’, draws on the latest research in social psychology and looks to answer why some people are more influential than others and what can make people take notice. This practical guide will help you hone your personal style and enhance your presence and influence.
