Our people are the single biggest factor behind our success.
Even if we know what needs to be done, getting other people on board with our ideas is paramount and it requires a subtle approach – influencing. This topic explores how power and influence are interlinked, but also how you don’t need to be influential to have influence. It’s about learning some techniques and principles, thinking about your communication style and putting it all into practice.

In today’s era of flatter organizational structures and increased cross-functional working, developing personal effectiveness is essential, and key to this is developing your ability to persuade and influence others. Success in the workplace depends on building strong relationships and influencing others so that we can work with people and through people.
You will need to influence both internal and external stakeholders: your manager, your team, your peers, project groups and external partners. All stakeholders are different, so it is imperative that you have a good understanding of what persuading and influencing are, what they can achieve, and how to confidently adapt to meet the needs of different people and situations.
We are influencing others all the time – through what we do, what we say, and how we say it. Getting it right will help you to sway opinions, gain buy-in, keep projects on track, build your reputation and develop your career.
On this 90-minute workshop you will learn how to use two key models to draw on organisational sources of power and to increase your influence by applying different styles to suit different individuals and situations. You will leave with an action plan for increasing your own influence in the situations you have identified as important and for using some effective techniques of persuasion.
