This training session focuses on practical communication skills you can use to become more persuasive, and gives you time to practice them.

In conjunction with the trainer, you will work through exactly what you will differently on your return to work.

Our influencing course teaches fundamental influencing skills and frameworks.
These are the essential tools that persuasive people use day in and day out. These tried and tested tools do not change – people are still people whatever is happening.
The best way to implement these tools in your exact day-to-day work will vary according to the situation.
This is what we work through with you during the Personal Action Plan section of the day.

This is how we make sure that everyone leaves us with a clear personalised plan of action.
We limit the number of people in our workshops to 5.
We pride ourselves on ensuring that everyone gets plenty of one-to-one attention and time to ask questions and feel that limiting numbers is the only way to guarantee this to everyone who attends one of our influencing skills courses.
