Levene Speaker Series You Have More Influence Than You Think: How we underestimate our power of persuasion, and why it matters featuring Vanessa Bohns, Professor of Organizational Behaviour, Cornell University:

Tuesday, February 15
12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m. (Saskatchewan time)
Remote via zoom

Whether attending a meeting, sharing a post online, or mustering the nerve to ask for a favor, we often assume our actions, input, and requests will be overlooked or rejected. Yet Bohns and her research demonstrate that people see us, listen to us, and agree to do things for us much more than we realize — for better, and worse. In this talk, she 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 are using the influence we already have.

The Levene Speaker Series is *free* to attend, though you are encouraged to make a donation to the We for She Award for Women in Business Administration. A link to donate is located on the confirmation page that will appear following your registration.
