Influencing Skills: Bite Sized

In our complex workplaces, it’s rare that success doesn’t require the co-operation of others. Influencing well is not about manipulating others. It is a 2-way exchange that invites others to change. Everyone has a natural influencing style, but the greatest success comes from being able to adapt and choose a different approach when needed.

Influencing Skills is part of our ‘highlights’ collection of ready-to-tailor masterclasses with a strong pragmatic focus. Sessions can be delivered as is, or act as a time and cost-efficient starting point for developing personalised learning for your organisation.
