    As HR executives, we know that one of the most important capacities you can hold is the capacity to influence behavior. Once you tap into the power of influence, you can begin to solve the problems you care about most - from the simplest to the most persistent, resistant, and profound challenges you can imagine. Richard Lee returns to BAHREC following a very highly rated program in 2005 on Crucial Conversations. Please join us for this fast-paced, interactive introduction to the new program, Influencer, by the same folks who brought you Crucial Conversations. Based on over 20 years of ongoing research -- from a Fortune 500 exec who brought a new product to market in a third the time of her predecessors, a tribal leader in Africa who eliminated a deadly disease, to the founder of a San Francisco conglomerate who transforms the most notorious ex-cons into productive citizens. Find out how they have built strategies to overwhelm the problem.
