​​Join DePaul University for "Influencing Without Authority", a highly acclaimed presentation with Professor Bob Rubin 

This session is designed to be a primer regarding the fundamentals of influencing without authority. Participants will examine the evidence regarding the importance of influence skills in personal & organizational success and the extent to which some tactics are more or less effective in gaining commitment from others. In addition, participants will work in small groups to solve a short case & then using a new set of influence tools, reexamine the situation from different outcomes. As a result, participants learn that many of the most commonly used forms of influence tactics are also the very tactics creating resistance & distrust. 

Professor Rubin specializes in the areas of organizational behavior & human resources management. His current research examines leadership assessment & development, organizational citizenship behavior and graduate management education.

Before the seminar, DePaul University will provide an overview of its MBA & other graduate program offerings. Lunch is provided. 

Date: Monday, April 15, 2019
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: 171 N. Clark - Floor 2 (Room: Magnificent Mile III)
