The biggest challenge facing content designers isn’t how to write strings, it’s how to get “in the room.” But the act of getting in the room is the end result of a series of actions and behaviors that you should be practicing every single day. After all, you won’t get anything done if everyone in the room doesn’t respect you.
Influence is something anybody can wield: introvert, extrovert, whatever your leadership style. This session will give you practical, specific examples that content designers can use to build influence inside an organization.
In this session, you will learn:
- Practical steps on how to build influence among key figures inside an organization
- How to think about “getting in the room” not as a tactic, but as the end goal of a strategy you have implemented long beforehand
- An action plan to understand how to identify key people, understand their needs, and influence them over time
