Influence Responsibly and Effectively 

Dealing With Power Structures

Dealing with power is part of everyday professional life. Dominance and status behavior are always a central instrument for enforcing decisions. We cannot avoid them and only have the choice between high status (respect) or low status (sympathy). Status determines how we communicate and what we achieve. As long as power remains a taboo, the way it is exercised and the goals associated with it will never be questioned or even changed.
In this seminar, you will reflect on your own way of dealing with power and status and exerting micropolitical influence. You will become more aware of the power structures in your environment and perceive power constellations in a more differentiated way. You will deepen your competence in shaping your own sphere of influence.
