Leading Across Organizational Boundaries: Finding Common Ground
Leaders need to break through organizational barriers in order to achieve critical goals. Knowledge workers do not operate in a vacuum—they have to work cross-functionally to create customer-focused solutions. Managing the explicit as well as unspoken boundaries is critical to perform at a high level. Finding common ground with people from other areas of the business who have competing priorities requires effective communication and negotiation. It also requires managing conflict.
Increase your sensitivity to the systems and interpersonal issues that impact the ability to get things accomplished. Look at the success factors for building trust across boundaries. Walk away with tools and techniques to influence and engage others.
