You will learn this in Leading without power

We’ve all dealt with people with overbearing personalities from time to time. Perhaps there’s even one of them inside of you? Even without a formal leadership position, you can still use your authority to get what you want. As a result, you cultivate good will, and people listen to you. This ‘Leading through authority’ training gives you the building blocks to work on these topics. 

You practise making agreements and discover how to ensure that your colleagues live up to their end of the bargain. How do you talk to people in a way that fosters a strong relationship? This training answers that question too. It also focuses on how to inspire and motivate others, so you can easily rally them around your cause. 

The following subjects are covered: 

  • Influencing your colleagues and project teams
  • Approaching people and leading them 
  • Making goal-oriented agreements
  • Working together as a team 
  • Managing expectations within the forces at play 
  • Inspiring and motivating others 
  • Exerting influence during (project) meetings


  • You establish authority without having a leadership position
  • You can assume and delegate responsibility at the right moments
  • You effectively influence your colleagues and those around you
  • You motivate and inspire your colleagues in the right way
  • You exert influence during the various phases of a project

Gain recognition as an informal leader

Target audience

You regularly assume responsibility. You enjoy calling the shots and you are serving in a (temporary) leadership role, without a formal leadership job title. Increase your impact, get your colleagues moving, and guide them to achieve better results. You can do all this by projecting authority in a natural way.

Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.
