No matter how intelligent and well-informed an organization�s leaders are, they can�t always see the big picture in every situation. We may find ourselves wanting to communicate ideas and suggestions to managers in a way that will improve the overall leadership of the organization, even if we�re not in official leadership positions ourselves. In this workshop, we examine the ways we can influence the efficiency and effectiveness of our organization and work team, even if we are not the ones giving all the orders. We also commit to being more flexible in responding to others. Finally, we explore ways of managing our priorities and expectations, while accomplishing our goals and the goals of our manager at the same time.
� Plan the way we communicate with managers and colleagues � Manage priorities and expectations � Effectively receive suggestions and feedback � Sell an idea up the organization
