Great book choice to consider by Ed Nicholson: Influence Without Authority

Authors introduction: “This is a book about influence—the power to get your work done. You need to influence those in other departments and divisions, that is, people you can’t order and control. You need to influence your manager and others above you, and you certainly can’t order and control them! But you are not alone: Nobody has the formal authority to achieve what is necessary, not even with those who report to them. It is an illusion that once upon a time managers could make their direct reports do whatever was needed. Nobody has ever had enough authority—they never have and never will. Organizational life is too complicated for that. Yet, it is possible to have enough influence to make things happen—and this book will tell you how.”
