Peer pressure is a powerful force. Ever since middle school, we have been influenced by peer pressure. Sometimes that has gotten us into trouble and perhaps sometimes it has gotten us out of trouble. In this session, we will discuss how to harness peer pressure within our organizations to support our change initiatives and increase their success rate. Combined with traditional stakeholder management techniques, engaging informal leaders and their influence as peers is sure to set your effort up for success.
