Influencing Skills

1-day Open Course

Central London

or One-to-One Training

Course Overview

More and more organisations are moving towards team-based, rather than hierarchical structures. This means that there is a greater emphasis on communication and negotiation across the organisation, than simply on positional status to make things happen. Some people seem to be particularly influential – they seem to be able to gain support and commitment for their ideas and goals more easily than others. However, the ability to influence positively and effectively is a skill that can be learnt and developed by anyone wishing to communicate their ideas persuasively, to build strong on-going relationships and networks and to gain acceptance and commitment from others.

This course will enable participants to practice the necessary skills to fulfil their personal objectives, whilst maintaining strong, long-lasting professional relationships. It is particularly recommended for anyone required to manage, to motivate or to influence their colleagues, customers or suppliers.

Influencing Skills Assessment H2 Assessments & Tests

In addition to the face-to-face element of the training, we also offer an optional assessment, which can be completed as a self-assessment or as a 360 degree appraisal that analyses your personal approach in relation to your current influencing style and skills. Whist it is entirely optional, the assessment is extremely useful for enhancing self-awareness and for providing a focus for on-going learning and development. The test is in interactive pdf format and can be completed at any time on your own computer. Once you have completed the test, you simply click on a "submit" button and we will automatically receive your answers for collation into a comprehensive printed report, including some useful suggestions of potential areas for improvement.

One-to-One Training

As an alternative to attending an open course with delegates from other organisations, we also offer "Influencing Skills" as individual training on a date of your choice. Feedback from delegates who have had a one-to-one session is extremely positive, as it means that you can have the undivided attention of one of our experienced trainers, and can therefore make sure that the session is entirely focussed on your individual needs/interests.

Our standard one-to-one training includes a flexible combination of face-to-face and telephone sessions. Most popular is a half-day (4 hour) face-to-face session either at your work premises, or at a convenient local venue, plus two one-hour telephone sessions - one before and one after the training. The telephone sessions help us to ensure that the face-to-face training is tailored exactly to your needs and that you are able to put your learning into practice to make real improvements to your performance at work.

The cost is dependent upon the location and duration of the face-to-face session and we offer discounts for two or more sessions. For example, our standard one-to-one training with the face-to-face session in Central London costs £600 +VAT.
