15th Achievers & Leaders Seminar: Crucial Leadership During Critical Times
“The most persistent problems we face in our organizations, our families, our communities, and our nations are problems of influence,” says four-time New York Times bestselling author and business social scientist, Joseph Grenny. “Unless we know better how to influence behavior change, we will never achieve the results we all want. The study of influence is fundamental to our desire to change the world for good.”
At the forefront of this change Grenny is referring to are leaders. No one knows this better than the Filipino who has been in dire need of positive change; who is more sensitive than ever in assessing the level of stewardship, leadership, and integrity of those who are in positions of authority.
Leaders have the privilege to effect the change they want to see in others. Leadership is a trust, and those who are on the receiving end of a leader’s influence will benefit from a sincere, intelligent, and timely use of influence to effect positive change.
And so Grenny calls leaders to the task. “Leadership is intentional influence. It is a process of influencing the behavior of others in order to achieve results. All of us attempt to do this all the time, but most of us aren’t very good at it. Many people have great visions, but lack the skill to carry them out. It’s because they don’t understand how to influence others to achieve the vision. In the 30 years we spent traveling the world studying successful influencers – those who have achieved remarkable results in alleviating poverty, eradicating AIDS, strengthening families, reducing corruption, improving economies, and more – they all have one thing in common: a deep understanding of the science of influence.”
We invite you to reinvigorate your desire to bring about profound and long-lasting change by hearing Joseph Grenny talk about “Crucial Leadership During Critical Tmes” at the 15th Achievers & Leaders Seminar on October 28, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM at SMX Taguig Convention Center.
Go beyond a motivational and theoretical standpoint and get leadership wisdom from a social science perspective. At the 15th Achievers & Leaders Seminar, Grenny will outline the influence process, as backed up by research, in an intuitive way. Applications of his findings on social change are far-reaching: from parenting, to education and training, defining organizational culture, understanding and influencing consumer behaviour, and effecting community and national development.
Joining Grenny are social entrepreneur and change advocate Sen. Bam Aquino, and Gilas Pilipinas Head Coach Chot Reyes who will also share with the audience their own leadership experiences during critical times.
