The purpose of these influencing skills training course materials is to help participants focus on understanding, developing and adapting influencing styles to best suit individual situations. The course materials focus on looking at participant behaviours and influencing style, how to adapt this to different situations and how they can approach situations where people have different styles and different levels of commitment.
The skills and models discussed in these influencing skills training materials will help your participants with managing workload and performance, developing those around them, influencing people other than their own team and influencing people more senior than them.
