Leading without Authority

Course Code: AMS288

This AMS course provides a deep insight to the skills, tools, and techniques associated with Leading without Authority. It can be used as part of a progressive curricular, standalone learning experience, or team up-skilling initiative. Leading without Authority is a key skill in today’s progressive organizations. In highly matrixed and distributed organizations, leadership is a force of “one” at times and an individual’s ability to influence, guide, and innovate is critical to accomplish objectives. Within the “we are all leaders” culture there must be a high degree of situational awareness to ensure the journey is productive. Participants will enhance their experience by interacting with imbedded scenarios, participating in table exercises, building a personal action plan, and sharing with their peers.
