Influence – Listening and Persuasion Techniques for Managers, Discover the best kept secret to winning hearts and minds to get things done, achieve goals and advance your career.

Wouldn’t it be easy if we could tell people what to do and they would do it? Working across teams in a business can be difficult since so many different personalities have their own ideas and priorities. How do you get something done with so many different stakeholders? How do you understand what’s important and adjust your communication to ensure alignment?

In fact, the biggest skill in influence is counter-intuitive and goes right back to the core of who we are and how we listen. We can build then on this foundation to adapt our communication style to ensure the highest levels of persuasion. Subscribe to hear the author’s personal influence journey, what that means in practice for you, and your ability to improve relationships.

The course includes:

  • What is a Influence
  • Influencing skills
  • Persuading different personality types
  • Dealing with difficult people and conversations.

This course is the third in a series that covers our “VITAR” framework for Relationship Management. Relationship Management is a core skill for anyone who needs to interact with people to get the job done. Different approaches, values, ways of communicating, empathy, ego and authenticity are all important considerations, yet in the bustle of our daily lives, we either forget, rely on our innate stock of skills because they have worked in the past or just muddle through. We could get the job done far quicker, but we need to unlock the code of Effective Relationships to do so. Having a solid foundation in Influence and Persuasion” is one of the keys that unlock that code.
