Welcome to Getting Results Without Authority™


Organisations are changing. The days of top down authority are gone. In today's workplace, managers and leaders work on projects where no single person is 'the boss'. There is more project working, reorganisation, matrix working, flatter structures, contracting and outsourcing.  Success depends on the outputs and cooperation of people over whom you have no direct authority. The most successful managers and leaders are those who can secure and maintain the agreement and cooperation of multiple stakeholders whilst still getting what they want. Getting things done relies on your ability to influence and negotiate rather than your position or rank.

Getting Results Without Authority™ is designed precisely to help you to do this. Go to The book pages or The course pages for more information.

The course has recently been extensively revised and updated and a SECOND EDITION of the book is now available from the online shop.

The Resources area includes (free!) downloads of articles, checklists, planning guides and other information that will aid your understanding and development.
