Working with different personalities, experience levels, and generational differences can make collaboration seem impossible. So how do you get buy-in? How do you help others hear what you have to say and be open to your ideas? There are no easy answers, and every situation is going to require a different approach—but I can tell you the five common mistakes people make when trying to get buy-in and how to avoid them.

In our session filled with real-life examples, humor, and practical advice, we’ll discuss:

  • The first step to creating a collaborative environment
  • Five common pitfalls that will sabotage your attempts to get people “on your side”
  • Tips for working with different people and personalities you can start using immediately at home and at work

Presenter: Jennifer Chapman

Jennifer Chapman, Head of Ambition Leadership, Principal Leadership Coach & Consultant used to be a workaholic, known as the go-to person for getting things done and managing the most difficult customers or clients. But when her mental and physical health began to take a hit, she began a journey to create a work and personal life that aligned with what she valued and wanted most. Now she has the job she wants, an independent confidence from within, and the ability to bring her authentic self into everything she does at work. She’s more successful—in terms of happiness, financial security, and her ability to help others—than she’s ever been.

Jennifer is an expert leadership coach who works with clients who want to be more confident, more authentic, and more successful. She especially enjoys helping leaders who have been promoted through functional expertise embrace their roles as people managers. She’s also married to an engineer and has lots of experience partnering with someone who has a completely different personality type!
