Whatever your context, good influencing skills involve planning, political awareness, personal awareness, a considered strategy and subtle tactics of persuasion. This workshop is therefore relevant for senior and middle managers and influencers with structural status as well as individuals who have no direct line-management authority over people they need to influence.
Using some theoretical models, practical techniques and exercises, this webinar explores the complex issues associated with influencing. In an interactive, lively environment participants will learn some of the theories of influencing, have time to reflect, and apply insights to develop strategies and tactics for managing their own unique influencing challenges.
This webinar is presented by Sarah Goldsworthy.
