Register here for the webinar: Using PQ - The art of making things happen – to get promoted

In today’s world, few people trust either the formal appraisal system or promotion system. It is not enough to have a claim to fame, you have to stake your claim. At the same time, managers find that their responsibility greatly exceeds their authority and resources. To succeed, they need input from people they do not control: senior managers, colleagues, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. They need informal power and networks of influence to accelerate and amplify their formal power, to reach beyond their span of control and budget. Join us to hear ground breaking research which shows how successful managers really make things happen and gain promotion.

This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Zoom access information will be sent after registration, one week before, one day before and one hour before the event. If you have difficulty receiving the Zoom link, please contact
