Influencing Skills

One of the keys to success today is our ability to effectively influence others.

Description

One of the keys to success today is our ability to effectively influence others. Using the techniques that you learn on this workshop will enable you to influence to change the behaviour of others and produce an effective result without the apparent exertion of direct command or power.

Negotiations can take many forms and can be time-consuming and exhausting. Most employees negotiate without having received any formal training and this can lead to the loss of the object of the negotiation or obtaining a result which is less than satisfactory.
