Friday 23 June, 9:00 - 17:00

Cass Business School, 106 Bunhill Row, EC1Y 8TZ.

Using influence effectively is a key attribute of the wise leader. This workshop is focused on the practical application of influence within the increasing complexity of organisational life. It seeks to answer the question:
“How to influence stakeholders and lead the direction of my organisation?”

Drawing lessons from four diverse leaders in Shakespeare’s political masterpiece – Caesar, Brutus, Cassius and Mark Anthony – we explore the nature of politics, ensuring participants have the knowledge to operate effectively within organisational power structures.

This two part workshop delivers two sessions in one day, with connected themes applied throughout:


Detailed Description

Using the Olivier Mythodrama methodology of interactive work, the insights and skills of Shakespeare’s famous leaders will be brought to life. This learning will be drawn from the following areas:

  • Understanding political intelligence and building a coalition
  • Mobilising support and using power effectively
  • Influencing elements and skills

The workshop is designed for nonprofit Directors/CEOs and Managers and will be of particular interest and value to alumni of the Cass CCE professional development programmes.
