2023 CCCM Conversation series
You Have More Influence Than You Think!
Have you ever felt ineffective, invisible, or inarticulate?
Chances are you weren’t actually any of those things. The Centre for Cross-Cultural Management (CCCM) is excited to invite you to attend its 26th CCCM Conversation, presented by CCCM’s Advisory Committee Member from Cornell University, Professor Vanessa Bohns.
Date: Tuesday, 7 November, 2023
Delivery: Via Zoom
While we often assume our actions, input, and requests will be overlooked or rejected, Cornell University Professor Vanessa Bohns’ research demonstrates that people see us, listen to us, and agree to do things for us much more than we realize — for better and worse.
Vanessa is the Chair of Organizational Behaviour at Cornell's Industrial and Labour Relations School (ILR School). Among her many accolades, Vanessa is a TEDx Cambridge presenter (2023) on the Thinkers50 Radar list of 30 Management thinkers to watch (2022).
In this talk, Vanessa will use the unappreciated power of a simple ask to reveal why instead of seeking ways to gain influence, we should become more mindful of how we use our already existing influence.
The Future of Work, AI, and the Role of the Manager
