As medical writers, we are often responsible for delivering documents that require expertise and input from a variety of team members. Though we carry a leadership role for our teams, we do not (necessarily) have authority over those team members. This session will map out strategies for effectively driving team members and creating consensus. We will explore scenarios and discuss plans of action for addressing them and audience members will be encouraged to share their tips for success.
