Influencing skills

Your ability to influence others plays a role in your everyday work. For example, you may need to gain support for a project, persuade people to take a certain decision, or get an idea across. Are you eager to get others on your side, at the right time and in a way that suits you? Then this training course is meant for you. By boosting your influence, you’ll make your point more clearly, gain confidence, and have a bigger impact.

You will come to understand your personal influencing style, the force field in which you work, what your convictions are regarding influence, and how to develop a strategic approach. You will also develop new skills: you’ll learn different influencing techniques that you can add to your toolkit.
