Dr. BradfordPresented by Dr. David Bradford

A fundamental challenge for organizational leaders has always been to exercise influence where they have no authority. For internal and external OD, HR, and management consultants, the challenge is twofold—they not only need the influence skills, but also an ability to impart these competencies to the client.

A solution can be found in Bradford and Cohen’s best-selling book Influence Without Authority (recently published in its Third Edition). Using the Law of Reciprocity, they show how using their model can lead to win-win outcomes even with those who appear highly resistant.
