Overview

The best leaders are great at building trust and influencing others - not only the people in their team, but colleagues and more senior people throughout the organisation.  They are able to get other people, employees and colleagues, to do what's required and often a little bit extra.  People listen to them and are enthusiastic about their projects.

This course is designed to teach you how to use influencing skills and the power of persuasion to help bring people around to your way of thinking, reducing resistance and overcoming conflict.

On this course you will learn how the skills of powerful influencers can be turned into practical tools that you can use to gain genuine buy-in, even in the most challenging situations.

  • The three factors that make you influential
  • Credibility as the foundation of influence and how to achieve it

  • How to be subtly persuasive with peer pressure
  • How to influence strategically

Who is it for?
