Influencing Skills Training Course

Course Overview

Do you want to significantly increase the influencing skills you and your team have? This training course will give you the required skills.

Many of us fail to influence because we don’t realise it takes a skill to do so. It is not an inborn talent. While some take to it like fish to water, the majority of us must work hard to learn and develop it. This Influencing Skills training supports Learners to get more of what they need in a positive way.

This training course will help Learners to better influence buyers, NPD teams, and supply chain teams by harnessing interpersonal and communication skills. It will give them tools, techniques, and confidence to better deal with situations where effective persuasion skills are essential. Thus, leading to improvements in individual performance, and winning more negotiations for the business. After all, that multi-million-pound deal is too important to jeopardise by not influencing enough or using the wrong approach.

Reasons to Believe in Influencing Skills Training

We believe that people have the right to be the best version of themselves.

For our Influencing Skills Training Course, we use a number of models that over time have proved their worth; one example is the Trust Equation. This model helps you understand the key components to what builds trust, helping you to understand why you have greater trust with some people than others.

Our training will help you understand and identify how you can improve the components of the Trust Equation, thus improving your own trust which is in turn key to being able to influence people effectively.

What Learners Say About Influencing Skills Training

“Influencing with Impact has helped me to understand how my body language and mannerisms communicate subconscious messages to my audience, what I needed to control, and the simple ways to be more influential. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and came out with various approaches to improving my deliverance and influencing impact, which I put into practice immediately.”
