Workshop: Persuading & Influencing Others

Virtually any business role requires people to persuade and influence effectively – whether it’s influencing customers, internal and external stakeholders, or persuading your colleagues… or your boss!   It’s a core skill for anyone in business.   But moving someone’s mindset from one position to another requires strategies, preparation and a range of skills.  Winging it won’t work… you need to win people over.  

This workshop provides practical tools and frameworks that will help you influence more effectively in a range of situations, such as the need to:

  • Win buy-in for your initiative, proposal or idea
  • Raise awareness of an issue to get a speedy resolution
  • Persuade people that may have competing priorities
  • Influence when you don’t have the necessary authority
  • Build good working relationships with customer and/or stakeholders  
  • Communicate more effectively if you are a business leader or people manager

The tools and models covered are practical and innovative.  No lectures full of esoteric theory…. if it can’t be easily applied, it is not in the workshop! 

The presenter:
