Learn To Influence The People That Matter
The best influencers know and understand the power to captivate and compel is central to success at all levels of your business.
Without influence, inspired plans get ignored, valuable relationships break down and your impact within an organization is dampened.
Perhaps most important however is that the influence process and science behind it, can be learned.
Strengthen Your Ability To Influence
The Influencing for Results system provides individuals with the ability to identify specific influencing skills that any individual can benefit from.
The system comprises two core components:
1. The Influencing Skills Assessment Tool™ (ISAT)
2. Influencing for Results Workshop
Influencing for Results Workshop
The Influencing For Results Workshop is a 1-day instructor-led influencing skills course that trains you and your teams to build trust and credibility with any type of person and to influence others effectively to get the results you need.
The workshop addresses the competencies identified as lacking by the Influence Skills Assessment Tool™ and benchmarks your current influencing competencies and gives you a really useful “road-map” to pinpoint the most critical areas of improvement in your skill-set.
Supplementing these skills in such a targeted way maximize the candidate’s influence, giving them the practical know-how needed to build consensus, motivate commitment and change, and deliver performance throughout the organisation.
The Influencing Skills Assessment Tool™
(ISAT) enables all employees within your organisation to identify existing influencing skills and areas for improvement. This data provides the basis for a development plan in support of improving your ability to sell ideas and gain support without confrontation.
The online survey provides concrete data on 25 aspects of influence in five key areas:
1. Building trust and credibility
2. Understanding the situation and specific needs
3. Presenting ideas and articulating their value
4. Handling objections and gaining agreement
5. Creating long-term relationships with effective positioning
