How to Influence Without Authority by OKR Expert and Author Christina Wodtke

RSVPing "yes" on Meetup will NOT reserve you a spot at this event. You must purchase your ticket for this event on Eventbrite: https://cwodtke.eventbrite.com We are excited to host Christina Wodtke who will share insights and advice from her new upcoming book on how to influence without authority. The complex products and services we create require cross-functional teams that collaborate across multiple disciplines. Yet usually, nobody on the product team reports to anyone else on the product team. To make decisions and drive the team forward requires team members to influence without authority. It takes an awesome team to create an awesome product. It’s time to give teamwork the same attention and craft we give our products. Christina will share lessons and advice from the top Silicon Valley companies that will help you and your teams achieve higher levels of performance. Join us for dinner, a great talk, and inspiring conversations. ABOUT CHRISTINA WODTKE Christina Wodtke trains companies to move from insight to execution at her firm Wodtke Consulting. She also teaches the next generation of entrepreneurs at Stanford University. Christina has led redesigns and new product offerings for LinkedIn, Myspace, Zynga, Yahoo!, Hot Studio, and eGreetings. She founded two consulting startups, a product startup, and Boxes and Arrows, an online magazine of design; and she co-founded the Information Architecture Institute. She’s the author of Radical Focus, an incredibly popular book on how to use OKRs (objectives and key results). She also wrote 101 Theses on Design, Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web, and Pencil Me In.
