Effective Influencing Skills Training
Influencing skills and persuasion techniques for business
What is the Effective Influencing Skills Training about?
Key to any successful enterprise is being able to influence and motivate people to take positive action – be it volunteering their expertise, buying your products or services, joining your membership or offering financial support. This Influencing skills training course is about equipping you with the skills and confidence to achieve a positive response – “YES I will”!
Influencing others is not about coercing or forcing them to do something that they don’t want to, it’s about encouragement, persuasion and sometimes, in the right situation, a little bit of coaxing.
Great Influencing skills go hand in hand with great negotiation skills.
Who is the Effective Influencing Skills Training for?
Our tailored Influencing skills training course can be adapted for different levels and job functions from team members right through to senior teams. InterCHANGE will discuss the sort of negotiations that go on in your organisation and what sort of influencing needs to take place.
InterCHANGE will discuss with you who wishes to attend the training and what their specific requirements are and then tailor the Effective Influencing Skills Training course for your organisations needs.
