Professor Vanessa Bohns

26th CCCM Conversation by Cornell Professor: You Have More Influence Than You Think!

  • Online
    Zoom - Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT)

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.
