Persuasion and Influencing Skills Training

We are all influenced by our surroundings and the people around us on a daily basis, be that in the workplace or in our personal lives.  By definition therefore, we also influence others regularly, directly or indirectly, whether we intend to or not. 

Developing Key Relationships

We have expertise in designing and delivering influencing skills training.  Before we begin the design process, we will initially work with you to understand who your key stakeholders are, be they internal, external or both.  Everything will then revolve around developing these key relationships further, in the context of your Organisation and industry.

Relate to your workplace

Whether you prefer a group based workshop or one to one coaching sessions, our influencing skills training will ensure that learners leave with actions that can be readily applied back in the workplace.  We can examine the key traits of effective influencers and improve your confidence in these areas, or explore the psychology behind different communication styles and work with you to frame your messaging accordingly, both written and verbal.

We can also work with you to identify the barriers to effective influencing, as well as exploring how situations often lead to persuasion, manipulation or even coercion.

Our interactive and competitive listening exercises are thought provoking and memorable, highlighting the importance of effective questioning, proving the importance of the old adage of seeking to understand first rather than be understood.  

We will work with you to ensure the content included will be appropriate for your audience and help you to meet your objectives. We are also able to support you post learning, by for example telephone support, attending live meetings or providing follow up coaching.
