Presentation Title
Influence without Authority – How to Speed Up Your Project

Presentation Details
We are all involved in some type of project, and as we try to get these projects done, a lot of times, stakeholders (clients, management, etc.) could be the setback from completion. In a situation like this, it is essential to influence your key stakeholders to move the project forward. How? The process is called “Currency Exchange.” You identify the relevant “currencies” that a person values the most and make “exchange” with your offer. Driven from social/psychological studies, this concept is the principle of relationships between people. Through this seminar, I would like to show how you can influence your stakeholders by introducing this “Currency Exchange” concept and its potential pitfalls
