This half-day program is designed to teach participants how to effectively influence others and the decisions they make. Our roles within the organization require us to influence others almost all the time. Whether it is to inspire others, gain support about our ideas, or persuade others to change their behavior we are constantly involved in the art of influencing. Getting people to cooperate with limited authority can be difficult and requires trust and mutual understanding. This course will teach participants how to use the right communication and persuasion strategies to achieve their goals. Successful influencing requires an understanding of yourself, the impact you have on others, and how people perceive you.
