I am a member of a user group that meets weekly to present on topics that we have learned from Manager Tools. Last week I facilitated a discussion around the topic [i]How to be Persuasive in a Presentation[/i]. A question come up that we wanted to get perceptive from the forum on.
Three members of our group were in a meeting earlier that day and were having difficulty coming to a compromise with another team that they had zero relationship with and low expertise. In order to resolve the problem they had to bring in some with role power for the groups to come to an agreement.
We talked about how role power could work in this case but shouldn’t be relied on heavily in the future. We also talked about using DISC and your network to help. What happens when you don’t have a network to work with? Are there any other suggestions that you have for handling this situation?
