Metropolitan Ballroom & Clubroom

I’m so grateful for the interesting work, terrific relationships, and friendships that have unfolded over that period. As someone who has influenced some dimension of my world during our time working together, I would be honored if you’d join me for a few hours to allow me to say thank you and hopefully give a little something back in return."
- Mary Steiner
During this event we will spend time exploring the power of influence in three ways:
- Workplace Influence: Learn how to sharpen your Influencing skills with APG thought leader, Kelly Dozois, of Ocean Beach Consulting. Kelly has worked with leaders from the executive suite to individual contributors at Apple, Nike and Levi Straus to build their influence skills. She will share the research around this important skill and specific tips you can use immediately to build your Influencing capability.
- Community Influence: I will share a bit about Simpson Housing Services, a not-for-profit in Minneapolis that provides important services for the homeless, and the influence this has on our local community.
- Professional Influence: You will have time to connect with peers in the area and meet amazing people—either during the session or during our 4:30-6 pm social time.
Prior to the event, you will receive a link to a quick e-learning tool to help you get you acquainted with the topic and identify the influencing skills you need. We'll also provide you with tools you can use to immediately apply what you learn back on the job.
Space is limited, so if you plan to attend, please register immediately.
