Essential influencing skills in the workplace (Talk)
We’ll learn how the ability to influence others is key to success in today’s world. With examples from the business and domestic world, we’ll see how different styles of influence are appropriate to different situations. We’ll learn how to spot the different styles in action and who is most likely to use them. We’ll identify the key success factors for each style, and the counter-indications.
This course is made up of short, focused video clips each clearly targeted on one aspect of the programme. For each of the four styles studied we’ll look at the definition of the style, the type of person likely to use it, when it is likely to work and when it isn’t. Each section is supported by a downloadable briefing sheet, an aide memoire for future use.
The course is illuminated with examples and case studies supported by powerful and dramatic video scenes that highlight the points being made. A comprehensive quiz allows you to test your learning and, with reference back to key video clips, makes sure your learning is secured.
