Influencing Skills Training Course

Exercising Influence

The ability to influence others is an essential skill for both established and emerging leaders in the workplace. Our influencing skills training course explores two primary influence orientations and five unique influencing styles that allow leaders to make connections, gain buy-in and support, promote ideas, maximize opportunities for collaboration and cooperation, and get results. Participants use the Influence Style Indicator assessment to determine which of these styles is most dominant for them, which are preferred, and which are underutilized, all of which is summarized in a personalized feedback report. This personalized report addresses individual strengths and challenges, explains how to address underutilized styles, and provides tips for utilizing influence effectively.influence training course
